Pretty mellow. Not very well kept. Saw some garbage and when we picked it up, the trash can was locked so we just had to set it outside. Our girls caught (and released) a little frog which was exciting to them.

Wonderful, easy trail with tons of history, flora and fauna. We saw a few gators off the trail too...so beware.

Beautiful weather for a short hike. Saw three large alligators in the two canals.

Nice short walk. I saw a pair of bald eagles, I believe they have a nest nearby.

I went in December, a tough time to see gators, but the armadillos, amazing birds, and cool vegetation made it all worth the trip!

Love this place. Great for birding.

Great little trial. Went with 3 9/10 year olds and they had a blast. Packs lots water and big spray...

Easy going walk through the swamp. Short trail with wild life to see, alligators, turtles, birds. This is a lightly trafficked enjoyable trail.

Beautiful trail! Much plants and wildlife to admire.
The many wild irises will be blooming soon.
If you are there and they are blooming, please post a review. I want to go back when they're in bloom!

Parking lot locks at 5. Park outside the gates if you wanna stay past 5pm.

Great trail. Well kept. They aren't kidding about the bugs!!! Wowzers! Bug spray did little to help. We saw two alligators (one in action as it caught and ate it's breakfast), a large frog, several birds, squirrels, etc. watch out for spiders... They are everywhere and if you go first thing when they open they aren't cleared off the trail yet. Got some great photos along the trail. Easy walk for beginning hikers but be sure to keep a close eye on little ones. The gators we saw were right off the trail and a mere foot away from us.
