Red Maple ~ Acer rubrum
This tree is located a little bit past a wooden bridge leading deeper down the yellow trail marker by the disc golf course. Native to North America and can generally be found along forests, meadows, fields, shores of rivers or lakes, swamps, edges of wetlands, and woodlands. The reason I included this species is that it is one of the first trees I learned to ID, it can generally always be found in swamps and also is one of the first trees to begin dormancy and show fall colors when autumn comes around.
