Great trail to spend time enjoying mother nature at her finest. Lots of birds and the occasional alligator or two. I live close by and enjoy this place on a weekly basis.

Very true Florida experience. Nice boardwalk. Lots of nature and different plants to see. Can be a little hot in the summer time. Watch for flying bugs as well.

Great place for a walk...mostly raised boardwalk through the woods and along Turkey creek, though they have begun putting in some more primitive trails. Take a wander along the creek and see manatees, alligators, fish, turtles. Nice place to take kids because of the raised walk ways...keeps them out of the weeds, sand and bushes. There is also a small... More

This is a very nice boardwalk trail, and possibly we just visited at the wrong day/time, but we saw almost not wildlife. The boardwalk passes the creek, but vegetation has grown up blocking a lot of views. I would consider this a nice place to take a walk if you are in the area, but would not make a special... More

It would be nice if trip advisor had told us this before we got there. The man at the house very rudely advised us that no dogs were allowed.

Right next to the local library. Handicap friendly also. the boardwalk has "gaps" that make a walker/rollator feel a little bumpy. But not enough to discourage... More

This sanctuary consists of a series of boardwalk trails around and over Turkey Creek, which feeds into the Indian River. Visitors can also rent kayaks to navigate the waterways. On of the trails also has an exercise course built in. While there's nothing thrilling or exciting here, it's a wonderful place for a peaceful walk or kayak. I've seen manatees... More

great way to get close to nature without hiking. All boardwalks and beautifully kept, and it's very peaceful. You can even go Kayaking if you feel like it.

Beautiful, peaceful place to take a walk and see natural beauty. The information center is very, well, informative. And the folks who work there are helpful and seem to truly want you to have a great experience. If you're thinking about experiencing it, I'd say "go for it". Enjoy!
