LeCompte Wildlife Management Area

This 353-acre forest is not old-growth yet, but is does have a nice variety of tree species and some impressive specimens. Some that will make you stop in your tracks include, willow oak, loblolly pine, and swamp white oak. The forest also has nice sweet gum, black gum, red maple, beech, and holly. Wear your rubber knee boots if you're going to walk the trail since this flat Eastern Shore forest is very wet, and the trail seems to be the wettest part. Heading off the trail toward the northeast will put you in a drier area with larger trees. This forest is a refuge for the rare Delmarva fox squirrel.
