Woodlands Trail and Park
Woodlands Trail and Park is an established educational, historical and recreational greenway and trail that is open to the general public. 13-miles of natural trails traverse through a bottomland hardwood, coastal forest, passing along edge communities that are a frequent viewing area for wildlife and migratory birds. The Naval Ammunition Depot Trail is a 2.25-mile trail that leads to a grouping of ten World War II Ammunition Magazines nestled in the forest and surrounded by wetland areas.
