About the Trail
J. F. Gregory Park is skirted by a 300-acre rice field that predates the Civil War. A three-mile walking trail runs along the top of a dike that encompasses the field, which today is a wooded wetland. In addition to a wide variety of bird species, the trail is home to otters, beavers, alligators, and armadillos.
