Lovely place. We didn’t find a visitor center. A couple was releasing a turtle. This is how local species get decimated. No ranger around

This is such a hidden gem. Love the trails and nature. Great place to search for painted rocks or let the kids burn off some steam. It's very shaded easily accessible and usually not too buggy.

Trails galore. So many that have been there 4-5 times and still keep coming across a new section. Beautifully kept with free daily entrance. A great go to place for nature walks.

Nice day for a hike, did all 3 trails, a couple miles total. Mostly a native area with many trees and plants identified. Trails are easy to follow and being Florida, little elevation changes. Some trails appear to be wheel chair accessible. Several water features....More
