First trail I've been to that has a bike repair station!!! Did the north loop including the Tern trail, be aware the Tern trail is listed on map as .48 and is .70 one way. A small bit but it's a primitive trail, not highly used.

WELL BUILT tower for preserve/bay views. Main trails are well maintained for bikes and strollers (NOT ADA) but wheelchairs can use the blacktop trails. Many benches on the trails with GOOD views.

There is a trailhead (south end) at Manatee Ave with a nice boardwalk to Perico Bayou.
