The Caloosahatchee River is a natural area in Cape Coral. You can get on the River by boat and explore the area. It’s natural and green.

The Caloosahatchee East and West Preserves each offer opportunities for walking trails. The East Preserve has longer trails offering both boardwalk and a bike trail . The bike trail is just under three miles and can be walked or dirt biked. It is muddy in places but is still a fun walk. You are out in the open sun so make sure you bring water. We walked it on a 70 degree day and were hot, hot, hot. You will find many people walking their dogs on leashes. Everyone did a great job of controlling their dogs and picking up after them. The dogs and their owners were friendly. The preserve as a whole is well maintained, quiet, and provides a nice break from a busy day. There is not a great deal of wild life. This is more about a quiet walk with the possibility of glimpses of the Caloosahatchee along the way. The West preserve offers a launch for Kayaks or canoes. You’ll need to be aware of the tides if you plan to launch here as the waters can be very shallow at times. The trails here are shorter, but again they are will maintained. It is a bit noisier here as you are closer to the highway. There are benches for sitting g and communing with nature along the trails.

This is one of our favorite "getaways" when we are overwhelmed with the noise and bustle of the everyday drum beat. It's a great way the get back to nature.

Caloosahatchee Creeks East has your choice of trails- Oak, Fetterbush and Sweet Bay, indicating the different available habitats. The Sweet Bay trail has a view of the river and power plant across a beautiful marsh. Many people take their dogs and keep to the leash and cleanup rules.
