Short, 1/2 mile, dog-friendly trail. Trail floods quickly with rain and is often wet in places. Buggy. One pavilion with some tables and a grill at trail head; composting privy. $3 per vehicle fee

Very short, beautiful trail. Saw some cool tracks. Probably Skunk Ape or Sasquatch.

My husband and I love this park. It is small but the presence of springs throughout the park makes it special. Beautifully maintained, helpful staff, and it is multi-purpose, too,. It has sections for picnicking, some fishing, and they have a KAYAK/SUP rental as well.

Another reviewer wrote the other, southern, portion to be small. This, however, is the small portion of the Werner- Boyce trail system. It's entrance is located behind, and near, the Hollywood 18 theatre. It is a short loop that showcases the diversity of Florida's natural beauty. I recommend it for anyone looking to get away for a short hike or to sit on one of the provided benches along the trail and appreciate the sounds of nature around you.

New boardwalks and trail expansions were added since this park opened several years ago. They also rent kayaks now and have kayak dollies available for those bringing their own boats. Nice kayak launch.
