Nice, well maintained preserve, best viewed by bicycle. Many locals walking dogs and cyclists on the paved paths. Might be very warm in summer.

Take a stroll through the mangroves that’s accented by overlooks on the waterway. Fun place to let little ones run off some steam.

We are so happy we went. No one was there when we arrived so we had the paths to ourselves. But wonderful to meet locals on their way in and they were generous with their knowledge and recommendations for the island.

We enjoyed walking the loop and venturing out on the wooden paths. Saw a hawk, crane, fish, spiders, large bugs, nothing too crazy. Was a nice way to spend an hour and a half!

Yes, I am aware it is Florida and I'm sure it would have been much more enjoyable on a cooler, less humid day. I have experienced those type of days in Florida in the fall or winter. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.

I am not sure, we didn't have a dog with us so I didn't notice the signs. That being said I didn't see any dogs there either.
