Lake, Viewpoint, and Wildlife Viewing

Directly across the street from the parking lot off the trail is Waterfront Park. There’s a short boardwalk where you’ll frequently find people fishing. Just north of here is another longer boardwalk that’s great for spotting fish, sunning turtles, various water fowl, as well as sailboats.
