Great canoe trail. We did the short cut and it took us about 4 hours. Trail is well marked although it could always be better. Not too much wildlife. Only a few birds and fish.
The start of the trail is across an open lake. There is a lot of animal life so keep your hands in the boat. The trail narrows but is passible. It does open to the saw grass. I would suggest bringing a pole to use for propulsion. The trails is well marked with PVC pipe so there are no issues.
There are a few gator holes along the route also. Lots of birds and did see a couple of raccoon and lots of gators.
