Description: Kayaking on Cane Creek Lake is a unique experience since the lake is situated where the West Gulf coastal Plain meets the Mississippi Alluvial Plain meet. This man-made lake offers kayakers a chance to explore through stands of dead trees as well as live cypress trees. During the summer the lake in many areas is covered with water lilies to kayak beside. There are also spectacular beaver lodges to view along the way. All along the trail you can view wildlife such as bald eagles in the winter and great egrets in the summer. This trail is marked with yellow blazes on the trees and yellow bouys in the open water areas.
