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!
