“Enjoy Easy Family Hike and Explore Local History”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

I took my sons ages 9, 6, and 4 on the flat easy North Pioneer Trail. We went all the way to the St. Lucie River and the kids dipped their feet in and then we came back. We'd had a long day already and my 4 year old was done so we save the South Ais Trail for the next day (it's only about 6 miles from our house!). This trail leads to you to an Indian burial mound (which you are NOT supposed to climb). There are some bridges along this trail and at parts before and after the access to the bridge was quite muddy, but my boys certainly didn't mind. :-)

“Spruce Bluff: Hidden History in Port St. Lucie, FL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Spruce Bluff was settled by pioneers in the 1890s. A big freeze in 1895 wiped out the crops and the settlers abandoned the area. The preserve has the grave of some of the settlers, some short hiking trails and even an Ais Indian mound that dates back some 2000 years. It's at the back of a neighborhood in Port St. Lucie and nobody really knows it's there. Great for hiking and biking. Family-friendly—certainly no hills! It's a cool little corner of history in a place where history has visited seldomly.
