Started at Isle du Bois and walked south to the 482 access which is about halhway to 380 access and then turned around. Total of about 10 miles. About half way to 482 access there is a small turnout from the trail to an old cantilever bridge spanning the creek. This bridge has nothing but the rusted trusses and the concrete piers at each end but was reportedly used by Bonnie and Clyde as a route of escape after robbing the Pilot Point Bank. About  a quarter mile south of this bridge I saw a bald eagle flying around and then saw it resting in the top of a tree above the creek. First time I've seen one this far south.
