Stoney Bayous 1 & 2 Loop
This loop will take you on a route around Stoney Bayou 1 and Stoney Bayou 2. These two empoundments are very different because SB 1 is salt water and SB2 is fresh water. This means that SB2 will have alligators and in the winter be a home to migrating water foul.
SB2 is also a nesting area for fresh water birds, such as Black-necked Stilts. The return route takes you back down trail 128 which is a dike that separates SB1 & SB2, giving you a good view of both impoundments at the same time.
