Love the trail. Ran with it 3 times. Lots to see beautiful scenery.

Easy walk.

Definitely a trail you need to take your time on. You can walk it in 30+ mins easily but miss some really amazing sites.

Park is closed by the Park District, October 21st 2017.

Simple boardwalk walk. Normally can see a few gators and if early enough a wild hog or 2.

We loved this trail. Defintely planning to go back soon.

The entire trail is a boardwalk. Very interesting. There is a one dollar per hour fee for parking or five dollars for the day. They do take credit cards. It's a machine. Lots of the cypress

Fabulous Trail but didn't know that dogs are not allowed. This should be included in this website as we brought our dog. He is small and so we carried him but I understand why they don't want dogs doing their business along this beautiful boardwalk.

skinny boardwalk,tough passing other folks!beautiful and friendly staff!

Lots of wildlife to see. Gators, hawks, frogs and snakes. Always something new to explore at this park

Very fun trail! Great spots to view everything from gators to turtles to otters! The fall is the best time to see the most otters as the water level is higher. Educational as well as fun!

I loved this. Baby Gators! I was also told the animal life is much more active in the winter months as well as early morning. I will definitely be coming back!

Trail mostly shaded. Lack in the diversity of plant life. It was an easy trail though parts of the boardwalk were closed off. Saw mostly butterflies, a couple turtles, birds, lizards, and an armadillo. Overall not that interesting but a nice walk.

very nice walk. lots of wildlife to see...
I've been there at least a dozen times. EvEr season brings different types of wildlife. I've seen pigs, alligators, otters, raccoons, birds, snakes, spiders, turtles, and fish. it's peaceful..well most of the time. sometimes you can here some loud people coming through. i try to get ahead or wait until they go through because they scare everything away.
i try to be quiet...so you can see n hear nature.
love it ...shade...benches to sit.. bathroom only at entrance...so go before you hit the trail.

One of my favorite places with my classmates studying coastal marine ecology. This area is beautiful, and holds so many wonders that go unseen at first glance.

I prefer more challenging hikes, but this little boardwalk was fantastic for bird watching. Very mobility friendly (kids, wheelchairs) and lots of different types of flora.

Walking trail built into the swamp. Not long but had some great views with wildlife. Birds, turtles and gators with plenty of fauna.
