Awesome views. Beautifully maintained.

Pretty good hike/walk. The north end of the trail was a little more enjoyable through the woods and a little bit of an open area on the east where it's a little eerie walking through a forest of mostly dead trees bent by the wind. The south end passes through the garden and a series of ponds. There's a lot to see here and worth the $5 or so admission. There's also a nice beach on the other side of A1A that's part of the park.

It took my pregnant friend and I about 3 hours to do the entire park without any stops. There are places you can bring your pets and ride your bikes but there are some areas that are off limits to both. We couldn’t find the coquina beach but we saw some cute turtles and armadillos and even found an old bench to sit on and watch the water.

Lovely trail. Be sure to check out the beach with the coquina after you are done with the nature trail. It’s across the street from the park and your admission to the park will allow you to park there. Wear closed toe shoes to the beach so you can climb the awesome coquina rocks comfortably.
