You have many options when the Education Center is open (which it wasn't on our visit): hiking the flat trails through different areas, kayaking, canoeing, or driving the short portion of the white trail to the boat landing. We chose to ride our bikes but other were horseback riding which looked like much more fun. we entered at the Walton... More

We spent three hours here walking the trails. We discovered a cranes nest with babies. Saw numerous Sandhill cranes, ibis, even an otter! A nature lovers' and shutterbugs' delight! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. We plan to return soon.

I love the Preserve. It's a little piece of heaven. Gorgeous views, wildlife in their natural habitat and amazing trails to walk. Unfortunately the day we went the trail was flooded from rain, so we were limited. The park staff is friendly and knowledgable and ready to answer any question you have. Perfect for picniking, biking and relaxing. Def. a... More

The trails on the north side were essentially off-limits for us due to the heavy rains the day before but we did make it down to the canoe launch area and had a picnic right on the water. The day was sunny and cool and the March winds were blowing very hard. We then made the right decision to drive... More

This beautiful preserve covers a large area north of Walton Road in St. Lucie county. There is a nature/visitor center which is closed Tuesday and Wednesday, numerous walking and hiking trails. We were just there in the beginning of March and for the first tine we saw alot of water in the wetlands--some of the trails are muddy and are... More

My wife and I visited there briefly. Adjacent to the preserve on a quiet golf course we saw 5 Sandhill Cranes who seemed to be unperturbed by our presence. We also say a large Osprey nest with active hatchlings.

Entered via the Port St. Lucie entrance on a Tuesday. The education center is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. Entered the park area ($3 fee for each car) and drove to parking. Took the yellow trail -- and assume all the animals were either on strike or affected by the economy and unemployed as I saw no wildlife. Walked about... More

Very nice walk we use to take our dog and walk for miles. We would stop at the covered lookout overlooking the water and watch the numerous different waterfowl. We also saw snakes and gators in their natural habitat. On one occasion there were several Turkey vultures circling overhead, and I told my wife to keep her arms moving to... More

It was closed on Tuesday and Wednesday this week, so be sure you call in advance. The exhibits were interesting and educational. We were greeted at the entrance by a gopher tortoise one day and by 3 sandhill cranes another day. The staff was friendly and helpful. There were hiking trails and kayak tours are available - check out the... More
