This is an amazing archeological spot; Florida deserves kudos for finding this spot and protecting it. I gave it 5 stars because it’s really very cool to stand where ancient peoples lived so long ago. The river view/dock is a lovely place to watch the sunset too!

This is a very short, but interesting trail because of the mound and the history of the indigenous people who lived here up to 1500 years ago. You can go over the mound via a boardwalk and come back by a nice trail going around the mound. There are more trails than are indicated in the All Trails map. There is a nice dock at the furthest end of the trail.

A gem of a little trail with fascinating history as well as beautiful waterfront and forest scenery. There's a little under a mile worth of trail around the mound; be sure to take it all in.
