Every easy for a first timer; mostly flat, a little damp in a few spots, but lots of animals. We saw deer, woodpeckers, cicadas, but no snakes or alligators.

Great trail a little remote during the week, also watch out for alligators, one day I photographed 4 that we’re alongside or just off the trail. Saw 2 eagles one day.

The walkways through the marsh were low making it easy to view wildlife. Birds of prey, alligators, lots of turtles.

Awesome trails, the cypress swamp is beautiful. I bicycled through and saw abundant wildlife as well, in my one trip I've seen 3 alligators (sunning themselves near the canals), a dozen or so blue or white herons, ducks, and turtles. I saw some deer tracks on the trail as well. Definitely worth your time. However, the trail is not really a loop. It is more like a "U" shape that goes around the swamp, but not completely.

Very nice trail, we ride bikes every Saturday, about 26 miles each time. Wile life in winter was very active. Some areas are rooted but over roll I like it.

Nice easy trail. Couple options to make route longer or shorter. Saw a coral snake and a bunch of lizards. Didn't see any mammals but saw lots of drippings-small cat and maybe hog. Loop would be good for all ages and ability levels for either hiking or biking. Eagle trail is hiking only and more uneven terrain. Overall really nice, we'll maintained and easy to follow trail.

I was there once . I think it's great !, I would recommend it to advance riders because it requires physical endurance .

Nice walk on a boardwalk through cypress and marshy ecosystem. Best to go after a rain, you can hear the gators and frogs bellowing. Plus there are rocking chairs overlooking beautiful views along the way. Thumbs up.
