A loop hike through a quite pine forest. Great for hiking or trail running.

This loop hike is accessed from a short walk from the Bold Cypress Trail and the visitor center.  There are no views along this trail but the what I enjoyed was the pine needle covered trail itself.  The pine needles are like a soft carpet padding the trail.  I enjoy trailing running this loop more than hiking but either can be done.

Hike the Bald Cypress Trail

This is an easy hike that meanders a bit more than any of the other trails in the park. It is also the most diverse in what you will see.
