Trail Description:
This is the most well known trail. It is semi- circular, leading from the parking area down through the woods and around a small lagoon before ending on Hidden Oaks Drive. At the end, you can either retrace your steps or return to the parking area via the road. There are 2 sets of wooden steps at steep areas of the trail. Often deer can be seen in the woods. The lagoon has a resident alligator and several pond sliders. There are plant identification markers along the way. This trail borders Camp St. Christopher. The Camp has named one of the live oaks the Kissing Tree. Look at the back of the tree and you will see what’s left of the mouth!
