Very beautiful short trail! Be sure to bring sunscreen and bug spray because the only shaded areas are overrun with mosquitos.

Lots of birds! Roseate Spoonbills, Blue Wing Teals, Great Egret, Ring Neck Decks, Flicker... lots of little birds. Love this trail & that it connects to Robinson Preserve via a footbridge.

Easy hike on a gravel trail. Great if you want to see how old Florida scrub land once looked. Lakes and a board walk. Saw plenty of ibis and spoonbills. The upper loop is for walkers only.

3rd visit, each time different flowers where blooming. Has a ADA (door big enough for a wheelchair and hand rails) port-a-john. Parking for 15-ish cars. Bike friendly on lower loop and right (east) side of upper loop. NO bike riding on the top and left (west) side of upper loop. Long walk between end points, walk your bike. NO DOGS!!!!! Left side of lower loop has a duck blind to watch wildlife and is in older "woods". No straight boardwalks, all are curved like trails!! :-)
