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.

Make sure you do this hike in the winter or spring because it’s VERY HOT and lots of mosquitoes during the summer :)

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.

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 :(
