I like to trail run this place. Watch for pigmy rattlers when warm out.

Wonderful collection of trails. We did the orange, yellow and part of the east side of the purple trail. It was all very well kept and had stunning views everywhere. Saw a few armadillos and a couple families of raccoons. Will definitely be back to explore the other trails

It was so much fun! Tried to do the whole trail combo but got stuck on the purple trail due to the flooding! Can't wait to go back! Saw some wild pigs, turtles, and tons of butterflies!

Yes.. you'll need bug spray; but this trail is great for moderate mountain biking. it's long.. and is mostly shaded. definitely do this one on a regular basis.

Me and my friend took our combined 5 children here for a day hike. We had a great time and were able to get some great pictures. The banana spiders are healthy and thriving in this lush environment. The marsh is beautiful with an abundance of hermit crabs. I definitely recommend this trail.

This trail is beautiful. We saw a wood pecker, cardinal and many other butterflies and birds. We also saw a raccoon, dolphins in the water and a family of pigs with a lot of piglets. I also saw some insects I've never seen before. The foliage and water views were beautiful. It was 102F when we were hiking but thankfully the trail had a lot of shade and benches along the way. We will definitely be back. This was the most wildlife we've seen on a trail in Florida during the day.

Loved the trails and that the park was not crowded at all. There was enough shade to where the heat wasn't miserable. Beautiful scenery, all I can say is BRING BUG SPRAY! Without bug spray the mosquito can definitely ruin your hike. Everytime we stopped we were swarmed with 20+ mosquitos.

We hiked the southern red and purple loop. Lots of shade and hard woods. Eventually you walk along the river with some gorgeous views. Downed trees frequent the river banks. We saw many birds and armadillos.

Previous reviewers had given me concern over how kid friendly the trails would be. The 8 miles of trails that I hiked were more than kid friendly and there were plenty of benches and scenic rest areas. There was a small section of the yellow trail that was very close to a swampy area that I wouldn't have felt comfortable taking the kids on. However it could easily be avoided.

Overall, a great trip and lot of natural beauty to see.

Nice trail. Watch for ticks....bring spray. Watch for snakes on the trail. Hike north of the colored trails....beautiful. Savannah trail/hardwoods/river--usually spot an alligator.

It was my first time to the park. We walked the yellow trail to the water. What a beautiful place to enjoy talking a walk.
