  • After reading the reviews about CREW we chose this to be the first place to explore in the Naples area. We listened to the recommendations of others and took our walk in the morning while there was sh...  more »
  • A friend and I took our bikes here and launched our adventure without too much forethought. Yes, I had a spare tire with me for my bike, a 24oz water bottle and we both had our helmets on. Halfway int...  more »
  • Very good green trail wildlife. We had done a few meters and came across a family of raccoons. There are not many visitors. I would highly recommend

  • Absolutely love it here! Be prepared to share the trail with alligators that come out and sun on the trail. Been coming here for a few years, and easily has the most wildlife activity that I've seen within reasonable distance from Lee County. Whether you're into birding, or you're in love with reptiles, you won't be disappointed. Be smart before coming out, read up on it on the CREW website and get to know what you're getting yourself into first.
  • My favorite place to walk and take photos. I typically go in fall and winter due to mosquitoes and water levels. You can see tons of wildlife and alligators are right next to the path so be careful with small children or pets. Animals seen include Alligator, raccoon, deer, turtles, and countless bird species.
  • Lots of wild life and birds to see. Go early in the day. Preferably bring a bicycle so you can go further into the trail. Don't forget to bring water and snacks for yourself.
  • My boyfriend and I love this trail! Always something to see and just so beautiful! Just be mindful of the gators!
  • Corkscrew Audubon Bird Rookery and Boardwark. It's a great place to visit if u r local, or take a guest. Lots of educational information to read inside if you take your time. The boardwalk is great, however, go early to see the most wildlife. I have seen here or near by, bear, panther, otter, deer, turkey, eagle, alligator plus every other critter that is in the Everglades ecosystem excluding the Everglades Mink, which you have a better chance of seeing a skunk ape before this little mink! I saw a dead one in our office once that got hit by a car in the 30 + years of my living in this biome. It is a nice place to get out in nature without getting your feet wet or muddy. If that is what you want, (getting into the earth literally) go West on Shady Hollow Rd., look for the Crew Bird Sanctuary trail head sign on the right, it is a nature walk, in nature no buildings, on eye level (dirt trail, some gravel)! Several miles of trails, plan on getting your shoes and clothing dirty if your going to do it right. Gators move off the trails if you throw sticks or anything their way, lots of biodiversity, don't forget some deet, or the mosquitoes will eat! :-) Great place for walking, getting out to see the true S.W. Florida, while still on a trail! :-)
