Light hike, but very scenic. We’ll kayak it next time.

Nice boardwalk. Short but well maintained trails. Also an observation tower is located on South side of the park. Can rent kayaks across the street from the main parking.

Fantastic board walk thru the mangroves. The whole Weedon Island facility is first rate.

Great outdoor walk in Pinellas which is hard to find.

The kayak trail through the mangroves that really makes this place unique. Depending your pace and tides, and if you want to spend time in the deeper bay waters, one of the many fishing holes, or stop at the sandbar for a swim, the trail ranges between 2/6 hours to paddle.

It's excellent for critter spotting. A wide variety of birds, dolphins, rays, fish, and crabs inhabit the groves and on land you'll be sure to see a raccoon sneaking about, maybe even an armadillo.

It's a St Pete gem that offers enough of a scenic relief, you can forget the city is just over your shoulder.

It was beautiful and had lots of wildlife... including the worst mosquito swarm I'd ever experienced. Didn't make it as far as we'd planned as a result. Hopefully not the norm, because it was great otherwise.

Beautiful Scenery and birdwatching, you can see everything from ibises to roseate spoonbills in their natural habitat. There is a museum with an ancient canoe dug out of the mud and reassembled for display. The boardwalk is shaded, peaceful and very lightly trafficked.
