Good Morning Nancy! Our trails are all natural - sand, soil, grass - and are open for bike riding. However, personal physical, experience and comfort levels will determine what trails our visitors are comfortable travelling and what type of bikes can be used. It is...More

If you are in the Port Saint Lucie area, and want a quiet peaceful time away from the traffic, this might be the place for you. You can have a carry in lunch and enjoy the views.

Water has been too low for kayaks. Call their office for updates. Don't think they have bike rentals. Try Ironhorse Bike Rentals on Hutchinson Island
