  • I love this place whenever you want a piece of mind you can always guarantee that this place is it.. I love nature and there's lots of it and I got to see all kinds of different Critters.. when you're here you feel like you're in a different world and almost as if you're not in Florida with everything that's around you there's some great hiking trails if you've got the energy to check them out if you're looking for something new and different each time you go I bet you can find something that you've never done before!!
  • This reserve is wonderful! If you love to hike and experience wildlife up close, then this is the place for you. My family and I got to see the wild free roaming bison and horses this go around which is a rare treat! Be sure to have your bug spray ready and expect some of the trails to have some closures during the raining season and you will enjoy your time here immensely!
