Barely anyone on the big loop on Saturday. Amazing landscape that keeps changing. Say a ton of animals including deer and baby armadillos. Trail is well marked. A lot of it is in the sun... sunscreen and tons of water is a must!!

Good trails, a lot of variety. We saw a gator too which was a big plus. Perfect for biking but we went by foot. Only area that would need improvement is the signs to show where the different trails start. Entrance is 5 dollars per car:)

Trails are very well marked and there are many different lengths to choose from. Best I've been to in the area so far!

Excellent trail however the maps, signs, and blazes were a bit confusing.

You can spend the weekend here exploring the trails. It is a nice park to hike or mountain bike. I like to bring my dog to this park.
