The Canebrake Ecological Reserve Public Access Trail is open again after being closed for two or more years. It is a lovely place for a morning stroll. The paved, handicapped-accessible trail is not in the greatest of shape, so a wheelchair, while it probably could get through, might require an occasional push from a friend.
The entrance to the Public Access Trail trailhead parking area is located on the north (forest) side of highway 178, 4-5 miles east of the community of Onyx and a mile or so west of the community of Canebrake. An easy landmark is the large greenhouse visible about 1/4 mile back from the road, on the south side, across from the preserve parking entrance on the north.
