Park at the Publix in the Shoppes at Ibis on the south side of Northlake Blvd. Then after walking across Northlake Blvd, make your way around a yellow metal gate. The trail is not labeled, but it is easy to find and follow. The north/south route shouldn't get your feet wet. As of this review, I have hiked this trail 3 times without including the loop. To include the loop, there will be water to walk thru. As far as the north/south straightaway, one may have to walk around some puddles and around some muddy patches, but that is it. It should be easy to see an Everglades Racer Snake, a Pileated Woodpecker, a Red Bellied Woodpecker, a Green Heron, and a small Alligator, if you are stealthy and attentive. On a late afternoon, I saw some Raccoons. I have captured Deer, Boar, and Opossum, on a trail camera here. Depending on the time of the day, one may have to get a mile in not to hear a revved up car or truck on Northlake Blvd, but then the occasional plane traffic takes over from the nearby North Palm Beach County Airport. I do not believe there is hunting in this area.
