In palm beach county you have the glitz most people are aware of and the polo and horse communities but the good old boys go to Corbett to go hunting deer, hogs, even gaters in season. I taught RE principals and practices years ago and used to tell the students "you need 2 pair of Gucci's and 2 pair of... More

We had been here a number of times years ago and went again recently. There are some very good things about this, but some things that bothered us. First, getting there is an adventure itself--there are two entrances, one north on the west side of the Beeline Highway and one south which you get to by going west on Northlake... More

We were really excited to be able to drive or hike through the wildlife area. When we arrived there, we did see the butterfly garden which was a big disappointment because there were 6 butterflies. Then we didn't find anyone in the office so we could hike around and finally did find someone who worked there to help us. Basically... More

Be sure and bring a snack and some water as the area is very large. If you are quiet you might get to view some wildlife. I enjoy this area as it is the real Florida.

This review is only for the Hungryland Boardwalk and Trail. Finding this place is an adventure of its own. Once you see the large sign for J.W. Corbett, continue down a dirt road for about 3 miles. There are "No Trespassing" and "Warning" signs all along the road. We ran into 5 vultures in the middle of road, which made... More
