Super easy. Nice clear paths. Bathrooms at entrance. Peaceful. Lots of lizards and birds chirping. Neat little swap walk with boardwalk and sitting are. About 4 miles.

We enjoyed the hike very much! Beautiful scenery and easy to follow. Bring bug spray as the mosquitoes are not playing around!

Very nice shaded trail. Well marked and easy to follow. A bit mushy in a few spots but easily passable. The mosquitoes were out in force, but as long as I kept moving they were tolerable. The boardwalk and the river are super pretty. I’ll definitely come back and do this after a couple good cold snaps so I can enjoy it more.

This trail is quite shaded and easy to follow. It is pretty typical central Florida scenery, but the boardwalk is unique. This short part reminded me a bit of Congaree National Park. We walked it midday on a Saturday in October and saw two other couples. We didn't find any wildlife, but there were some interesting insects. The road is a bit sandy but easily managed by a low clearance car.

Nice trail. Pretty and shady. Walked it on an early and muggy Wed. morning. I was only one there. And that includes insects and wildlife. Glad about the former but not about the latter. Walked the red trail and boardwalk. Took a little over an hour.

Beautiful well canopied nature trail with butterflies and jungle like appearance. The bathrooms were extremely well-maintained. The red trail leads to a beautiful boardwalk and river where you can enjoy complementary canoes with the reservation. Will definitely return!

Had the trail all to myself, interesting walk with nice canopy. There are a couple of offshoots to explore including a 440-foot boardwalk that ends in a canal that goes to Lake Dunham. This is an off-the-beaten track gem!
