Not a hike, but a nice nature trail where you are at least guaranteed to see wild alligators without any barriers. Lots of birds, reptiles, amphibians, and occasionally wild horses and boar.
It can get pretty hot and uncomfortable with the saturated humidity, so try to go in the morning.
Really a nature walk. The raised boardwalk by the water was closed for construction. 4 stars if that feature was open. The bypass doesn't offer much in comparison. We didn't see any bison/ horses but that's probably a time of day issue. The potential for an amazing experience is there so we'll visit whenever we're in town.
Very easy trail, great for children, beginners and elders. Trail is part paved, part boardwalk and mostly dirt road, not for those looking for wilderness trails. Great birding.
Great for wildlife, Bison, Wild Horses, Alligators and many small animals. Much to see. little shade, bring sun screen. Three miles out and back with many stops.

I wouldn't call this a hike. More like a walk. First section is paved or boardwalk. Was pretty busy while we were here. But great for families. Good chance to view gators and some wild prarie animals.
