Great Florida trail. Signs of wildlife and good birding opportunities.

Nice trail. Dry at this time of the year.

keep a good lookout for blazes not all easy to find, trail lightly traveled so hard to stay on track

Nice secluded trail. Not very scenic but enjoyed being the only ones. Several people with horses on the horse trail. Partial sun. Ground rooted and uneven. Hiking boots help.

There are two very similar areas here. Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve which is much different then the Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve NORTH area. The main slough preserve does have boardwalks, is shaded and has facilities. This is not the case with the North area. Trail is not maintained, infrequent blazes and 50% shade. Much more secluded though. We met one couple at the trail head as we were starting. They turned around and left before leaving the trail head. Visited in late September and of course we slogged through water 50% of the time. Fun for an adventure, but not for the family.

This is a great walkway. It is a board walk way with many look out spots. I saw 3 turtles and a number of butterflies. It is mostly shaded, so it's not too bad in the heat. A very nice place!
