Short loop rail around man made retention ponds in a gated community. Most of the trail is paved sidewalk but part of it is just grass.
It is a well paved trail for easy to moderate hikers. I went on a cool morning and enjoyed myself I would not recommend it during a hot day for there is little to no shade. The views are kind of bland but not altogether terrible. I did see plenty of water birds including an osprey and even a gator.
IMO this is a great little trail. The majority of it is asphalt, but there is a small section that is dirt / grass. It's very quiet for being behind an apartment complex and there is usually always someone on the trail, either walking or jogging. I photograph as a hobby so I was pleasantly surprised at the abundance of birds along this trail, which is why this trail is a favorite of mine.
Not a bad little trail. Right behind Vista Cay resorts so it's used rather frequently. Do need to watch out for petrified dog poop though.
