The Otter’s Path Nature Trail is a 4 mile, moderate difficulty loop that primarily follows the shore of Prince Edward Lake and is accessible from the Connector Trail, the Conference Center, Cedar Crest Road, and from the prince Edward Lake boat ramp area. The trail provides access to the Beaver Point Trail. This trail includes some significant changes in elevation and is the longest, as well as the most challenging, trail in the park. Among some of the plants seen on this and other trails in the park are the sassafras, sweet gum, oak, loblolly pine, cedar and seasonal wildflowers. Animals such as the elusive otter, the white-tailed deer, beaver, blue and green heron, and a variety of reptiles may often be seen along the lake shore.
