1) What It's Like
Pretty thick oak forest and an earthen slope into Paynes prairie - a sea of grasses when it isn't flooded.. .then a sea of water and dead grasses.
2) Kinds of Birds
Forest birds - warblers etc.
Anything is possible but we've seen armadillo, bison, deer, and wild horses.
A place to drop in money and a parking lot. That is all.
5) Time Requirements
It takes 35 minutes to talk to the Prairie part and it's basically a loop ending there.
I like this trail a lot. It's mostly a forest trail but also you can walk down an earthen ramp into Paynes Prairie. In college I'd mountain bike here and a few highlights:
Other than that it's a very quiet place except there are quite a few warbler/mixed-flock type birds in here. I'm guessing that's because the proximity of the prairie. The prairie itself is kind of neat to walk out on and you see some birds out there but it's not close to get to the water when it's not flooded. And even if it is flooded you're better going up the road to the boardwalk on 441 to see water birds.
Very nice trail - recommended.
