Located 12 miles south of Stuart on U.S. 1, this park teems with wildlife in 13 natural communities, including sand pine scrub, pine flatwoods, mangroves, and river swamps. The Loxahatchee River, Florida's first federally designated Wild and Scenic River, runs through the park. Ranger-guided tours of the 1930s pioneer homestead of Trapper Nelson are available year-round. Visitors can enjoy paved and off-road biking, equestrian, and hiking trails. Boating, canoeing, and kayaking along the river are also great ways to see the park. Anglers can fish along the riverbank or from a boat. The nature and history of the park comes to life through exhibits and displays in the Elsa Kimbell Environmental Education and Research Center. Programs for the kids, or for the whole family, are also offered here. The park also offers two full-facility campgrounds and a youth/group primitive campground. Visitors can arrange boat tours of the river and rent canoes, kayaks, and motorboats by calling (561) 746-1466.

The biking trails are much more interesting than the walking trails to me. You do have to pay attention and move out of the way the bikers. But they are very nice.

It's just a road. If you're looking for a silent walk, then it's perfect. But if you are looking for adventure, then I don't recommend this trail. It's just a road that a car can drive on. Extremely monotonous.

I'll be back. I only had a Short time. Must see the tower!!
