This one-of-a-kind oddity is a bowl-shaped depression in the forest covering dozens of acres. From Eastpoint head east on U.S. Highway 98. Turn left on John Allen Road and left on Dry Bridge Road. The area features dwarf cypress that never grew more than about 15’ tall. These trees are documented to be over 150 years old but only reached a stunted mature height, hence the name “dwarf cypress”. They are also referred to as “miniature” or “hat-rack” cypress. The Ralph G. Kendrick Boardwalk offers an observation tower overlooking one of the most prolific areas, with interpretive panels and picnic tables.
