This is a great place to take a shady leisurely walk and learn about all the different kinds of trees in a Florida hardwood hammock....as well as the geological history of the area. I agree that this would be most pleasant in the winter months. (We did not see one bug in February.) The fossilized coral is fascinating. I read that some people bring paper and crayons to make rubbings, but be sure to ask about that in the visitor's center. The visitor's center is small but very helpful to understand what you will be seeing. Take the time to watch a couple of the short films there. You can do a self-guided tour with their excellent guidebook. Entry fee is a mere $2.50 each, plus $2 each if you want a ranger to give you a guided tour (children under 5 are free).
