There is an elevated walkway through the trees, and if you take your time and stop to watch for animals, you may be rewarded with some amazing sights. We watched turtles in the water, then watched a large black one trek through the dry brush to a second pond. We also saw a small aligator swimming nearby the walkway and more turtles, frogs, and fish. It's a nice walk where you can take your time (no mosquitos when we were there, and the sign says it's because the frogs, turtles, etc eat the bugs and their larvae) and wait to see what comes by. Can't beat the price -- the walk is free and the parking was just $1 per hour. We really enjoyed it!

Its a nice walk on a boardwalk, and you will be impressed with much of the scenic views. In a lake they have their some Boyscout of times past built these platforms for the turtles to sit in the sun, and the gators quickly took advantage of it. Great way to spend a morning.

Guide led us around the slough and explained a lot about the wildlife. Can't imagine what it would be like being one of the first persons to come to Florida way back when.

The elevated wooden walk ways are very well maintained as is the parking lot. It seemed to be about one and a half miles long with lots of twists and turns so you don't have the feeling of lots of people around you. Interesting things to see and some fun Q&A stops for the kids. Well worth the time.

We loved this peaceful break from the city. We saw a lot of wildlife! Pigs, alligators, birds, fish, turtles, and more. The trees were swaying in the breeze and we all loved the peacefulness of it. Took a lot of pictures. The boardwalk was immaculate and not at all crowded. Loved it and glad to have visited.
