The Jenkins Trail follows Tiger Creek. The George Cooley Trail is a loop trail that goes through scrub, hardwood swamp, pine flatwoods and cutthroat seeps. The cutthroat seep–dominated by cutthroat grass–is a moist habitat that periodically dries out. The Pfundstein Road trails provide access to Patrick Creek and a longer loop trail into an area called the central highlands.
