Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area Trails
During high to average summer water levels, the best place to hike is off SR 78 south of Lakeport. From this point, you can hike to Fort Center. Archeologist William Sears's book Fort Center provides a wealth of information about the area. In the winter, go west of Fort Center on the same access path to Cowbone Marsh, where you can observe wintering wading birds. It is best to hike through the cypress swamps, small hardwood hammocks, and open prairies west of US 27 January through May.
