These include basin swamp, depression marsh, bottomland forest, hydric hammock, upland hardwood forest, black water streams and sinkholes. We will take a casual 2-3-mile walk guided by Adam and Gina Kent. Trails are well marked, mostly wide and relatively flat. Meet at the main trailhead parking lot.
