Overview

Called Possum Walk Trail, it starts at the boat launch off Hwy 604 at the Logtown Cemetery near the PEarl River and ends near INFINITY. Markers along the way present the history of Possum Walk, a now deserted African-American community, as well as Logtown, an old logging community relocated in the wake of the 1960s Space Program. Interpretive signs along the trail point out some of the plants and animals native to this part of Hancock County. Motorized vehicles are generally prohibited on this easy, relatively flat walk and while the trail currently includes benches, a bridge, a floating dock and a kayak launch.
