Hike through the SW Florida mangroves This is a pleasant hike through the Florida mangroves on Pine Island, near Ft. Myers, Florida. You'll need bug spray. The path is largely shaded and there are benches to rest on. At the end of the trail is a boardwalk.

Great trail. Some shade spots. Just too short.

We love this one, kids and dog! A little buggy in the summer but worth the beautiful view at the end. I love to come here and sit, write songs, just be. Great little pine island gem.

Saw a lot of cool crabs and the water at the end is pleasant. Seems shorter than 1.7 miles.

My dog and I enjoyed our little hike. It was hot. Love going places that allow my dog to go with.

Very short but nice and comes out to some water at the end . Well maintained .You can park right near trail head. Had no trouble finding it.

It is indeed hard to find. In fact, did not find it. Had an address but that took us to the American Legion Post. The next drive was a private drive. The next hopeful was St Jude Harbor but nothing. Perhaps someone could post the actual roadside entry point?

Short and sweet! Good place to bring your dogs. Brought mine out and at the end they had a blast playing in the water! Also seen a couple dolphins playing together! Nice place to go overall.

This is a very pleasant walk, if short, which ends at a sort of dock. At high tide the water level is about 3-4'. You might see mullet jumping but very few, if any , birds. Low tide might be a better time to check this out. Regardless, it's short and easy walk as much has been very well developed and maintained.
