This is a great trail to hike if you don't have a lot of time. Most of the trails are clearly marked, and few are not marked. The trails that are not marked are not traveled as much. Those trails were more over grown. I went at noon time so there was not a lot of people on the trail. Between the heat and humidity it had a real feel of 98 degrees and there was not a lot of shaded areas. over all its a fun trail with some nice scenery. I would recommend hiking it at least once.

I highly recommend this trail especially for families or moms with strollers. There is just so much to see! Right when I started the trail I saw a a basilisk lizards, rabbits and by the very end I saw a tortoise and turtle. Tons of nature, pond overlooks and trails. Most of the trails are paved and the Uppa Stroller did amazing through the shell rock trails. Awesome experience and great hike!

Very relaxing you can definitely hear the birds around late afternoon.Nice houses surrounding the trail,cabbage palm trail was awesome.The more you explore the better.Not too long of a trail and not too short.

Was an awesome experience. This particular trial is located at the Nature Center. There’s ponds, wetlands, seen a couple of Gopher Tortoise, there’s a deer observatory (I didn’t see any deers on this visit), many plants and informative signs about the native plants. I will definitely return. Had no clue an area like this existed in our city. There’s some paved and off-road areas so wear appropriate footwear. There’s benches throughout as well to rest, and they lend binoculars for free. I absolutely loved the walk on this trial.

Nice family park with pavilions, lakes, a nature center, and various activities such as biking, kayaking, and picnic areas - you name it. They also have a one mile looping mulched path that was easy on the feet. They also have a paved path along the perimeter of the park. Loved it.

This is a very simple walk not really a hike. But it was enjoyable from seeing a gopher tortoise pulling into the center to seeing beautiful painted warblers.
