Long Description:

The trailhead begins as a board-walked area which leads to the dirt trail. I found this trailhead because there was supposed to be a geocache at the other end of the trex walkway. There, of course, was no cache, but a great opportunity to waymark a trailhead. The trail branches off to the right and left and is all dirt.

About the Area

"The center’s striking, contemporary exhibit hall includes a site map of the park’s three-mile mangrove preserve, the Living Crossroads theater which features a 10-minute closed caption video presentation, and a series of interactive and static displays that vividly portray and explain West Lake Park’s mangrove ecosystem and its significance. The highlight of the exhibit hall is the 3,500-gallon aquarium. Children and Adults alike also enjoy the hands on experience offered in the Eco-Room. The exhibit hall also provides a rotating display monthly of nature-themed works by local artists, photographers, and crafters. Many artists offer a gallery reception during their monthly exhibition. Call the park for current gallery artists and reception information. Artists interested in displaying their work can also contact the park at 954-926-2480."
