Its a peaceful trail. Saw a few snakes, alligators, birds and lizards. Would definitely like to go again.

This is one of the more primitive/secluded trails. Lots of snakes after it rains. Even saw some baby gators. Didn’t make it to the end due to an angry little copperhead in my path that I didn’t want to disturb. Very pretty.

Short nice walk. Some turtles, a couple of squirrels and some birds. Did not see any alligators.

Pretty mellow. Not very well kept. Saw some garbage and when we picked it up, the trash can was locked so we just had to set it outside. Our girls caught (and released) a little frog which was exciting to them.

Beautiful weather for a short hike. Saw three large alligators in the two canals.

Nice short walk. I saw a pair of bald eagles, I believe they have a nest nearby.
