Great location for sunset photos.
May 2019 • Friends
Heard another photographer talk about this preserve and wasn't disappointed when I visited for sunset. There are several areas along the eastern side of the lake that make for a good foreground element for sunset photos. The preserve is very popular with walkers and joggers of all ages. The lake is also popular with fisherman; it is catch and release. If you visit in the evening don't forget the insect repellent. There are a few picnic tables, two of which are under roof.

Great hiking
Jan 2019 • Family
Nice wide walking trail and also more narrow ones along the creek. Can hike for several miles with great views along the way.

An easy walk

An easy walk and you can take your dog on leash. It's pretty and quiet (unless you happen to annoy the peacocks).

Quick & Convenient Escape
Jul 2016 • Solo
I love that this preserve is centrally located in Ft. Pierce. You don't have to travel far to escape into nature. Trail maps would be nice, though it's pretty easy to follow the markers. I was dismayed to find litter, both on the main trail and more so in the canopy trails. Also, there was dog poop along the main trail. I wish the patrons would pick up after themselves - or that the county would give it a little more TLC. The trails and the pond are beautiful, though.

Small but excellent trails. Crystal Clear Lake
May 2016 • Couples
County has done a nice job of converting this area back to nature. Small trails around the property, but there are excellent trails in the back of the park that go under 95 and the turnpike thru beautiful hammocks and oxbows, hills and ditches. A hilly hike which is unusual for this area. There are no maps showing these trails but they are well marked and maintained. Park has garbage in it which was sad to see. People using it do not take care of it. Several of the trail markers were pulled out of the ground and thrown into the woods and river.
