  • Nice natural place. We saw lots of wildlife. If you go it's best not to talk too much or loudly as the birds and other wildlife will leave. We had a large loud group ahead of us so I think we would have seen more if it was quieter on the walkway and board walk. Very lovely and relaxing. Due to water levels the section after the boardwalk was closed. Also noticed some replaced boards do they are doing a good job keeping it safe to walk on. Done of the foliage is creeping up on both sides so that might need to be cut back. The Florida jungle will take over any structure left unattended. Thanks for having such a pleasant walk available! Baby alligator was quite still the entire time we were there. Was a very cute Walligator!
  • GREAT place to hike/walk. Did 7 miles last time and 15 or so alligators..3 snakes and a couple critters in the grass that we could only hear. One of the best hikes in the area.
