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.

Great trail to see many of the different ecosystems that Florida has to offer, walking from the upland scrub down to the river's hydric hammock. Lots of wildlife to look at from Gopher Tortoises to Wild Boars, the trail is great for experiencing Florida's natural habitats at work. Highly recommended trail with a great visitors center that has many interactive elements and tons of information about Florida's ecosystems.

While the outer loop in only 1.5 miles, you can easily get 3+ miles out of it by going back through all the small trails inside the loop. While the trail is short, there are a variety of terrains and habitats. Be careful not to step on one of the many gopher tortoises that patrol the sanctuary! There are bathrooms right at the entrance, and a cool little indoor activity center for kids, if you bring small ones along.

Tried this sanctuary out in July, big mistake there was a ridiculous amount of Mosquitos that bug spray couldn't even keep away. Some areas were very over grown too.

Nice trails--you can bike all of them in less than a few hours. Different environments to see. Look out for some amazing trees on Magnolia Loop. No dogs allowed :(
