I have hiked this trail several times. It is a good nature hike, I have taken my grandchildren and my Boy Scout Troop there. There are all kinds of plants, reptiles, birds, and mammals there.

Cooper Lake State Park South Sulphur Unit 10/21/06 Richard, Stephanie, Riley, Jacob, Maggie Enter Trailhead: 2:40pm Exit Trailhead: 3:15pm Approx Distance: 5 miles per park data Approx 13 other hikers, two dogs Cool day, jeans, no sweaters, kids still wearing soccer uniforms We had soccer games from 9-11:30 then traveled to a family reunion. On the way home we stopped at the Cooper Lake State Park / South Sulphur Unit. It had rained 4 inches about 6 days earlier, ground still wet in low spots. We had picked up a trail guide map at the park office, nice to have but was missing some landmarks, and I'm not sure about the scale. It said the trail takes 3-4 hours, we did it in less than two. Carried two small bottles of water for everyone. Maggie started off in the lead and screamed when she found a snake in the trail, a small dark brown or black snake with a white ring around its neck. Saw plenty of deer tracks.

This trail is very busy and easy to hike. It has benches to rest on and lots of shade.
Just another walk
