Nice place bamboo plants all over

My husband and I visited this park Aug 2018. Although we didn’t see any wildlife, except two turtles, it was a peaceful and enjoyable nature walk. Mostly all shaded. All wooded boardwalk. Note that no pets allowed and no jogging on boardwalk.

A boardwalk not a trail, nice scenery. However jogging is not permitted.

Love the unique island culture that is KW!!

This one of my go to hikes. It’s not marked very well but you cannot really get lost. Not much shade, bring your water.

This trail is north of the powerline trail. And it’s always desereteit. If you go in. 7/10 of a mile and then you can go to your left or to your right On a Florida trail piece. I went left. After .3 miles you come to a small bridge, and you want to pay attention because otherwise you’ll be on the big broad Road, and miss the nice narrow path. I continued on about 2 1/2 miles. Then it got wet. Normally that wouldn’t bother me but I was going to have to turn around soon anyway. I love how a trail looks so different when you’re going the opposite direction. There’s a lot of moss on trees. There are sections where palms have been burnt. And I heard either a frog Or a gator. I did not check out which it was. No mosquitoes today to speak of. And there’s always new people on this trail. It look like the one with the bridge swinging Bridge was packed. I’ll come back in the winter to look at that one.

Very pretty park, and a convenient way to experience a Cypress swamp.

This is just a hot walk along the Overseas Highway. Take water & dress accordingly. All Trails needs to update their descriptions.

I only hiked 2.5 miles before turning back. When you start the grass is extremely high and only room for one person, so you aren’t sure what could be there so we took it slow. The water was about a foot high in some parts, but not too bad.

Beautiful place ! Not as much wildlife this time as last due to high water levels. Cypress trees are amazing, 20 feet around,over 100 feet tall, 500 years old ! Enjoyable, easy walk in a beautiful setting.

I went for the skiing and snowboarding. Not only was I disappointed, I was overdressed and quickly became dehydrated.

Boring trail for me. I also don’t think it’s moderate, more like Easy.

Keep in mind that it is illegal (and unwise) to leave your car overnight at the trailhead along Tamiami Trail.

So I went on the main trail for about a mile. Then I came to the Florida trail and went left; West. It was very nice for 2.8 miles. Went through some soggy land lotta cabbage palms in Oaks. And some very open Palmetto scrub. You could see were fires had come through. Then I took the blue trail because that says it took me to the trailhead. And actually takes you to the road. The main road. I’m not much of a road walker and it was 2 miles back to the car. But it was very nice. Got to see the lake on one side and the swamp on the other side. Next time I will go either East on the Florida trail portion, or dog like Back or the Blue portion starts. It was worth it to do once. Because for a road walk it was pretty darn nice. I heard something crashing through the words; probably a deer. But I was not quick enough to see it. Lotta frogs. Oh and I did see a hawk when I was walking on the road. Maybe heard some alligators to I’m not sure. I was on the Branch house road or something like that. Didn’t see another person. The way I like it!

A nice relaxing walk usually ... but if it has been rainy make sure to wear LOTS of insect repellent, as the mosquitoes here seem to be extra bad. Don’t see wildlife very often but I usually go here for exercise rather than wildlife viewing.

It’s a nice walk through the woods of Naples. Not hard at all. The trails and bridges are well kept and clean. You can enter greenway via the main entrance or by the airport. The main entrance is the prettiest.

This is an access road linked to a paved drive. Its great for a flat trail run.

I hiked the trail towards the back. And was totally deserted. Wonderful. When you walk 1 mile down a ancient cabbage palm lined Road, you come to the Florida Trail. Maybe not like the real Florida trail, but I believe it’s a side shoot that they volunteer and maintain. You can go to the left and it says it’s a 3 mile loop back to the trailhead. I did not do that. I went to the right. And you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Next time I’ll walk even further there is a Bee island it sounded interesting. It was not super hot. And they’re actually no bugs. Yay

Very nice walk but I prefer trails with no car accessibility. Lots of places to look at water and bird lookout is amazing in the evening!

Whoever wrote this description needs to actually use the trail. Downhill skiing and snow boarding in The Keys? Really?

This was a nice trail. A lot of canopy areas and a few grassy spots. Cut it a little short, only did 8 miles, because of time. We started early which worked out great, because once you get in the grass there’s no hiding from the sun.

Nice place lots of wildlife

Went in March and there weren’t any mosquitos. This trail is interesting. It’s an out and back with a loop in the middle. It crosses train tracks and has a couple of bridges. Mostly covered though a small portion is open. I would imagine this trail wouldn’t be good for trail running because majority of the trail ground has unearthed tree roots. Kid friendly. Brought my 3 and 4 year old and they did okay.

must have recently had a controlled burn.

Great palms & not much people

I just spoke to a ranger at the park. The trail is closed at this time due to a large wildfire in the Picayune State Forest nearby, and only about 2 miles of trail are open, due to hurricane damage from Irma, and there is no timeline of when the trail will be restored.
