This 7-mile, one-way drive follows a dike road around several shallow marsh impoundments and through pine flatwoods. A self-guiding brochure (available near the drive entrance) will provide information on things to look for. There is a $5 fee (cash or check) per vehicle for a day pass or you can purchase a yearly pass for $15 at the Visitor Information Center.

Great trail, more for driving than hiking. they do have foot trails and bike trails but be careful. Caution: There are alligators and bobcats on this path.

Perfect for a drive out of town and into the real Florida! Lots of wildlife that did not shy away because of the car, perfect picture opportunities (next time I will not forget my DSLR), and beautiful surroundings. You can literally just get lost in here for hours and hours. Before you know it, it's been 3+ hrs! Well worth the drive.

Incredible wildlife drive! Lots of birds to see even for a desensitized Native Floridian. If you live in Central Florida or are visiting check it out--you don't even have to get out of your car.
