Beautiful, easy hike. Insect repellent is a must. Check for ticks when finished :)

Good walk, nicer at the end when you start seeing more vegatation. Several benches along the way. Pier is small but nice overlook. Very quiet and wildlife viewing is hit or miss. Take water durring the summer. This trail gets hot.

Beautiful little 2 mile out and back. The last 1/4 mile is dense with palm trees and there was a small alligator just off the observation platform

A mile and back along a well-maintained trail to a nice boardwalk and view of the Saint Johns River with plenty of old growth forest in along the way in Ocala National Forest. And easy hike, and turns into a loop about 1/4 of a mile in so you can take a different way back to the parking area. Biking and horseback prohibited.
