Great!

Nice quick nature walk. We didn’t see any monkeys but we did spot a snapping turtle hiding under the kayak launch.

HikingGreat!

The comments about views of the river are true, but we saw lots of monkeys. They were walking on the trail and swinging in the trees. We saw over 36 in the group. It was fabulous!!!

Odd little trail... only saw a glimpse of the “river” twice... the wee ones complained the ENTIRE WAY. Would have stayed to do more of the trails that we drive 2 freaking hours for but realized that it was never going to happen. This family of 4 would have lost a child or two along the way of another trail. Tasted some horse fennel... nothing really exciting.

The loop itself is grass surrounded by thick vegetation to where you can't really see the river -- or anything else. But there are a couple of places where you can see the river, which is beautiful. And the walk out and back from the loop is nice, too.

It’s normally considered hike trails but I biked them. Most were easy but Sinkhole Trail had some loose sand spots

The grass loop isn’t that great. First part of the trail is easy and enjoyable.

Walking

A nice quiet walk in the woods. Only two views of the river though. Flat and wide trail, well marked and well maintained. There is a picnic table at the river where you have a landing area for your river fun. No bugs, no monkeys but did spot a 3 foot Eastern indigo snake on the trail.

First to Review

Nice combo trails (4 miles) with plenty of shade, only a couple of wet spots on River trail to hike around, and a pretty boardwalk in the middle of the Swamp Trail.
