Place looks very new. We have done these walks through the back country of Florida in past and our favorite is probably CorkScrew swamp in Ft Meyers. This one has mostly well laid out trails through wooded area, a few boardwalks across the duck ponds and Cypress areas. But a real lack of wildlife, we saw one crane in a... More

Took the Green trail 1.7 miles. Trails were nice and wide and well marked. Would have been nice to see a map posted along the main intersections and a few benches to sit. Otherwise great park and no admission fee. My dogs loved it too.

I tried to visit in September 2014 but it was closed. This time I got to at least check it out but it turned too cold for me to hike the trail. The entire idea of preserving the nature apples to me. So many people who visit this area only see the beaches, which are amazing, but the wetlands and... More

We parked at the Trail head building at 9:45 am (public restrooms there), picked up a trail map and ventured out on our birdwatching hike equipped with binoculars, water & a snack. Thank goodness we did! We walked Route #8 = 6.5 miles beginning at 10am. Trail heads were marked but we still had to refer to the map. We... More

What do you need in a sweltering hot place packed with tourists?? A nice wooded shady walking trail in the pine woods. Now make the really stupid decision to cut down 90% of the shade trees along the trails and what do you have. A sweltering sun blazing hot sweat walk with lots of potential now for skin cancer. Only... More

This is a fairly large system of trails in the palmettos and under the shade of trees. It is very flat, and most of the trails are very bike-friendly. There are some muddy spots right after a rain where the trail can get very soft. It would also be a nice place for a cross-country run if that is your... More

This park is a great find. We have a small dog and it is a wonderful walking area for him with many other dogs also enjoying the park. The trails could be marked a little better, but there are many opportunities to walk the length and pace you desire. It is great that this park also connects to Gayle's Trails... More

Wonderful place to take a walk. Managed to get ourselves lost as we failed to take the map along with us and the signs didn't help us. Would be better instead of the top being north, it should be the direction you are facing. Big help to us directionally challenged.
