This trail leads you under live oak trees and to beautiful views of the marsh. Blue egrets and cattle herons can often be seen around Alligator Lake. Many sections of this trail are exposed and bringing sun protection is advised. There are benches along the way to take a small break if needed (especially with young children) and the path is fairly even and well maintained.Show more
