Beautiful trail with a neat nature center that our 3yo son enjoyed. Easy hike for all skill levels. Gets warm, but the trees offer some breaks from the sun. Bring water and bug spray.

This was a great hike, though there were allot of mosquitos. We missed that they had free bug spray at the trail head. This hike took us through several different biomes, was well graded and clearly marked.

several loops here with a large variety of flora. This is probably the best inland trail I have hiked in the EEL program to learn about inland Florida flora. mostly covered with some exposed trail. very well signed

Decent enough trail but there were so many planes flying overhead that they disturbed the peace! I think there is a small airport nearby. Would give it another shot though just in case it was a busy time of day.

The trails are very well marked and has a nice educational building with clean restrooms. We enjoyed our time there and I highly recommend it. It’s an easy hike.

We had a really nice easy walk. The weather was cool in the mid 70s. Lots of canopy and shade.

This is a very serene place for a walk. there is a lit of shade and plenty of places to sit along the trails. the coquita trail that we took wad a bit sandy and made it difficult to push the stroller at times. make sure to wear bug spray and bring lots of water!

Lots of different options and combinations for trails meaning that you could come back multiple times and have different experiences. Interesting. Would like to come back. Kid friendly too. I brought my 3 and 4 year old and they enjoyed it.

Hiking

What a lovely little park. A nice selection of different length trails that take you through a variety of plant communities. They intersect often enough that you can piece together a decent length hike (like 5k) if desired. About as good as it gets in FL for a park this size. Well maintained. Well marked. Has a nice visitor center with restrooms and water fountains. No dogs.

I did the 5 k track and enjoyed it very much. Still a little muddy and smelly from hurricane flooding but I had good boots on. Didn't see any animals but a few squirrels but the place was very beautiful and tranquil.

The track is a 5k if you do it correctly. Nice trail and kept up well. I love it and come back all the time to do laps for my long runs.

Our family loved all the well marked trails that interconnected! Plus, we came across multiple tortoises, woodpeckers, and more. Kid friendly, helpful staff, and friendly atmosphere.
