Birding

A new wildlife enhancement area is under development and will consist of floodplain wetlands, wildflower valleys, native grassy meadows, and upland ponds. Four miles of paved walking trails are open and the area already has attracted rare Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, nesting Black-necked Stilts. Lying in the heart of the Mississippi Flyway, the area is on its way to becoming a significant birding area for resident and migratory songbirds, shorebirds and raptors, and wintering waterfowl.

Hiking

The Park has over 8 miles of hiking trails from moderate to rugged. The Discovery Trail is a 4 mile continuous loop with a number of scenic points of interest including Chucalissa Indian Village and Wetlands. The new Wildlife Enhancement Area, located in the park's Day Use Area, has 4 miles of paved walking trails and is rated easy. The park also has a Day Use Area Trail that is 0.5 miles long and is rated easy.
