Short trail but a nice few along the creek with the bubbling springs along the way. The boardwalk makes for an easy walk

This is s short trail , mostly you walk on the boardwalk but very beautiful. Few spits where you see the water bubbling from the ground. Very impressive. Nice and easy walk.

Beautiful, but mostly on board walks. Although that might well have been fortuitous as I did encounter my first ever alligator.

Beautiful natural spring. I enjoy very much swimming the entire day in the spring pool. There is also like a 7 miles canoe trail down river that i was not able to do but looks very fun. Good park for a weekend in the woods and some relaxing and refreshing natural spring water activities.

Great place to camp or visit. Thick forest, crystal clear cold springs and a place to swim in them.

I love this canoe trail. It starts in a clear water creek that is only about 6 feet wide and snakes through the woods.It then empties into a large swamp full of aligators and other wildlife and ends in a river.
