The park has an entrance fee of $8 dollars per vehicle.

It’s a short hike but the trail itself is super nice with a very definite worn in foot path. Lots of shade and a few small inclines. The sign says a 30-minute walk but I got through it in about 20 or so minutes at a fast pace. The only reason for the four-star review is just that it’s a bit short but that’s just a personal preference! Nice hike.

Fun, shady. A few stairs. There was no parking opened right in front of the trail but parking was open at the road before the trail take a right and park on the right.

Not a long trail but a favorite for incline.

Hilly (particularly for Florida), but wouldn't take you longer than 30 minutes to complete.

Ancient Dunes is a nice little trail in the state park. I was surprised it wasn't just a flat trail. We had fun walking around the trail.
