More of a leisurely stroll than a hike, but nice. Good as a starter trail. We saw a couple alligators and local birds. Lots of indigenous flowers - honeysuckle and Louisiana irises everywhere. Trail boardwalk is in great shape.

Great little trail. Mostly a wooden walkway and some gravel but we were able to take the umbrella stroller just fine for the whole thing. We saw 2 small alligators, piles of tiny snakes and plenty of squirrels. We went around 9a and it wasn’t too hot. It’s not really shady so I would suggest going in the morning.

Pretty good trail. It’s boardwalk/gravel the entire length. Rangers don’t allow you to deviate from the trail. Saw 2 squirrels, 1 friendly Nutria, 1 Bald Eagle from a distance, 1 alligator mom with 3 tiny babies, a few small birds. Quite a few people on the trail...

Super cool trail! Amazing views...seen a turtle,snakes,spiders,birds, squirrels,a rabbit. Felt like we were in another country. Very primitive and the boardwalk wonderful! Kids learned a lot of history with the trail posters. Neat history!

Walked just mostly the Coquille trail right at dusk. Seen 3 small gators, marmot (I think) with 4 babies, and 1 wild boar. Boar came very close to trail but when I yelled “Superpowers Activate!” It snorted and ran off like a little beeeooochhh

I hike this trail as an addition to the Palmetto Trail. The best views on this trail were at the end when you can see the moss swaying in the wind by the swamp. This trail is a nice add on to Palmetto but I preferred Palmetto.

We did this in combination with the Palmetto trail. Fun walk through the swamp and marsh. Very hot and humid. Lots of bugs, spiders, a snake, and several alligators along the trail.
