The Hellcat Interpretive Trail is a boardwalk loop in the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. It was originally built in the 1970s by high school students in the Youth Conservation Corps. The (original) building material was wood, the width was 4 feet, and the boardwalk included stairs in places. It has been closed for the better part of a year as a new boardwalk was constructed. The new boardwalk is made of synthetic Trex plastic planks, is 6 feet wide, and has no stairs.
The rebuilt and wheelchair accessible boardwalk had a soft open last weekend. Informational signs have not yet been placed but the boardwalk is open for exploring.
I walked Hellcat yesterday, enjoying the autumn colors popping in different areas of the trail.
