“Off the beaten path, nice and quiet”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We wanted to get out of the parks for a bit and love to walk. (even after 5 days doing parks :)) We saw various birds and a turtle that just crossed the parking lot when we drove up the entrance. The rockingchairs near the entrance overlooking the first bit of wilderness were great ! Bring some coffee and just enjoy the silence, scent and view. Great to relax, easy to find

“A nice walk”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Contrary to most reviews, I'd have to say that this is only a nice walk through a typical Florida landscape. We walked the whole trail and hardly saw a single animal or bird even though there were hardly any others on the trail to scare wildlife away. It was very plain but the lake offered a nice view. There is a small nature centre describing a few animals of the preserve. The trail was easy to follow, dry, well-marked. It took us an hour to do the bigger loop, walking at a normal pace. It was pleasant getting away from civilization for an hour.

It looks and feels as if you are inthe wild, the animals and grounds are well kept. The organisational structure is something to behold.

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

A beautiful place to stop by, that's off the beaten path. Which is a great thing, because there are acres of beautiful, unspoiled nature all around. Give yourself plenty of time to tour.
