This trail was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We saw a huge gator. Lots of water and beautiful views. This is the prettiest trail I've ever been on! We are so glad we stayed at the park and got to experience all this beautiful nature. If you haven't been, it's a must go! It's truly amazing to escape from the hustle and bustle of reality and its not far either. We came from Saint Pete and it only took us 40 minutes to arrive at our getaway!
