I LOVED this hike. I walked 5 miles and saw a total count of 38 gators. Unreal. Tons of birds to see including bald eagles, spoonbills and cranes. Saw a mother and baby deer by the back of the park as well. The hike itself is a relaxing walk but it got quite hot as the morning went on. Overall it was well worth it and was a great hike! Will definitely do it again.
