It's fun it's not a hard hike it's super easy. It's more for seeing gators and turtles and birds. It's free to get in but no dogs allowed since it's a bird reservation.

I've hiked this are a few times. I've seen bobcats, otters, nesting eagles, swallow tail kites and marsh rabbits! It's well worth the time!

It was a great trail! We managed to see a pack of Sea Otters, an Alligator, and lots of birds! The trail was nice and open! One thing to mention is the site directions were totally off. The actual address to the site is 2045 Mud Lake Rd. De Leon Springs. We used the directions on the app and it took us about 10-15 mins off point to a residential part. Other than that one technical error the day was great and relaxing!! The observation tower was really nice and useful!

Nice wide trail, grassy surface. Tons of wildlife. We saw birds, alligators, armadillos, and snakes. Wear long pants and bugspray because the grass on the trail gets tall in some spots. Theres a nice observation platform and riverbank to take in views.

We hiked the 6 mile trail. Easy, flat hike. Bring water and a camera. We saw alligators, raccoons and a bazillion birds. Very scenic and uncrowded. Small Parking lot. Recommended.
