Dylan W. on Cay Lake Trail
It is a well paved trail for easy to moderate hikers. I went on a cool morning and enjoyed myself I would not recommend it during a hot day for there is little to no shade. The views are kind of bland but not altogether terrible. I did see plenty of water birds including an osprey and even a gator.
My dog and I hiked this trail for the first time today. It is about a mile of walking down a clearing of power lines. We couldn't find the pine loop trail and ended up at the housing development. I decided to turn around and saw on the way back that it was roped off. I'm assuming that was it because there wasn't a sign. The trail head behind the middle school starts out nice but it doesn't provide a trail map. We'll go back to this trail because it's so close to home but to be honest not very impressed on this trip.
IMO this is a great little trail. The majority of it is asphalt, but there is a small section that is dirt / grass. It's very quiet for being behind an apartment complex and there is usually always someone on the trail, either walking or jogging. I photograph as a hobby so I was pleasantly surprised at the abundance of birds along this trail, which is why this trail is a favorite of mine.
Zoe C. on Pine Island East Loop Trail
Great place for hiking/walking (except u hear the cars).
Very challenging for biking cause of the terrain. Didn't see much wildlife.
