This is one of my favorite paths to go down...it seems to go on forever. You can get the authentic sensation that you could get completely lost in this wilderness without the walkway as your guide. You can let your mind wander, under the canopy, just what it might have been like if you were searching for something. Just as easily, you can wonder what it might have been like to come here to become lost, as many freedom-seekers did.
The 'Dismal Town' historical marker on the boardwalk trail educates visitors.
