Great bike loop for me and my two kids (11&8). Maps were easy to follow and the tower was a highlight.

Really cool trail. A lot of birds and walking to the top of the tower is a must if you’ve never been here.

HikingFeeGreat!No shade

Walking on a paved path among the mangrove trees. Such Beautiful trail with the pelicans and other birds flying around or stopping at the ponds along the route. This path is easy to follow with rest areas along the route. Walking or bike riding you will encounter many people along the way. Don’t forget to stop and climb the watch tower for an incredible view of the preserve from above.

Nicely shaded trail, very clean, just enough people to make you feel safe, but not crowded. Not many views- main trail is mostly tree lined. Couple of bridges to go across for views.
