I went in December, a tough time to see gators, but the armadillos, amazing birds, and cool vegetation made it all worth the trip!

Easy going walk through the swamp. Short trail with wild life to see, alligators, turtles, birds. This is a lightly trafficked enjoyable trail.

Beautiful trail! Much plants and wildlife to admire.
The many wild irises will be blooming soon.
If you are there and they are blooming, please post a review. I want to go back when they're in bloom!

Parking lot locks at 5. Park outside the gates if you wanna stay past 5pm.

Enjoyable walk! Saw 2 gators and one small snake. Note that parking lot closes at 5 p.m. We had to rush through our walk.
