“A boardwalk at the beginning of this trail has the best view of the park namesake Magnolia Springs.”
— Lost Justpastnowhere
This short trail starts with a boardwalk loop near Magnolia Springs, which flows at 7 million gallons per day. The pool near the springs is crystal clear, but you don't want to swim in it with the alligators. You can also expect to see turtles and a number of species of birds.
After the boardwalk section ends, the soil base becomes sandy—mostly hard packed but occasionally beach like. There are a few roots along the way, but overall the trail is very easy.
There are interpretive signs along the way that list the different animals you can expect to see in the area.
