Hiked deep hole nothing to see until water dries up but pretty walk anyway #outsidetherapy
Very easy, we went as a group of about ten people, including toddlers. Watch out for gators. This is a nice half-day nature walk as an alternative to beach days.
What a beautiful park! There is so much to do and see here that it should make it onto any one's list when visiting the area.
This was a fun hike, because I enjoyed seeing the different plants and trees in the scrub forest, which are very different than the trees in the Midwest.
So much to do. Biking, boating, walking, guided tours. Did it twice loved it. Nature's wild life. Gift store and restaurant is expanding.
The trails near the trail head on the main road are well marked and we'll maintained, and easy, low stress, basic navigation skills. But to all the serious hikers and backpackers I'm Florida, check out there 38 miles of hiking only trails with I think 6 back country primitive spots. I'll warn you though, it is a prairie in most spots so plan water accordingly! Cheers
I ended up doing the North Loop a while back and ran into wild pigs on the trail. The only dont like is the trail seems more catered towards equestrians and not hikers. It was not very shady and very open spaced and the trail was mainly dirt/sand type. I plan on going back to do the South Loop and see how that is later when its cooler since there is not much shade.
South Loop: 7.4mi
North Loop: 5.4
The park is very nice. Beautiful views and wildlife. Primitive camping is the way to go at Myakka. The oak Grove campsite is about 15 miles from the trailhead. Overall great experience.
ood trails, easy to navigate. Nice views of the water.
