5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Take the kids and have a picnic lunch here. Old Florida feel and charm. Nice trails through the woods. Great place to spend a Saturday or Sunday

“Wildlife Preserve”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

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 the area was closed and the gates to the different trails were roped or barracaded off. So there was nothing more we could do there, and we left.

“Nature in the raw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

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.

“Peaceful spot for a Nature Trail”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2011

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 it all the more foreboding. Once you pass the guard shack (self pay) follow the signs to the Hungryland Boardwalk and park in the grass near the picnic tables.

The trail itself is very flat, easy and not long at all (1.2 miles). The boardwalk part is very nice and in good condition. There are some educational plaques along the way. We did not see one bird or animal (or person), but this place is very peaceful and pretty and the vegetation very wild. Better viewing may be had at dusk or dawn.

This is different than most Florida "nature preserves" I have visited, as it is a bit more inland and more isolated. It was nice to get away from the busy coast area and see a different type of landscape.
