Trail is largely made up of sand walkways with barely any shade. In summer Florida weather, this is definitely not a good choice to bring your dogs to. About half way through you can see the creek (filled with lily pads) but the rest of the route is plain with burnt vegetation and flat land.

A flat, grass mowed and/or FL sand easy trail. Hot with occasional shade. Fields of brush with some exotically unique flowers. Red tailed hawks galore. Take the side trail, near the start to see Big Creek- a tanin laden twisty peek into cypress knees and wetlands.

My wife and I took our 2 boys, 11 and 4. and our 1.5 year old Boston Terrier today. We loved the park and really enjoyed this trail. Trail was very well marked. Couple of Benches along trail. Bring plenty of water as it has stints without shade and today was high 80's to low 90's. we also seen birds, and butterflies galore. We also seen a tortoise. The state park offers many trails which I will post the trail map we were given today.
