Enjoyable. Part of trail is along the street (Booo!), but remainder of trail was through wooded areas and pleasant. I liked that the bayou overlook was on a wooden platform so I was elevated and the view was good.

The area is beautiful, although be warned, much of the hiking "trail" runs along the side of the road through the park. But there is a short loop that winds through some beautiful shady areas along the bank of the bayou. If you want to see an alligator, it's a great place to check out. Off of the fishing pier and over the marsh, you can also see a beautiful sunset.

Really fun trail! Took my 3 year old with me to wear him out a little and he had a good time. The area was very clean and well laid out. Had no problems with the trail we even had the opportunity to see a few animals.

Awesome little trail! Didn't get a chance to check out the displays as we arrived right at closing time. Will definitely go back for a longer trek.

Went there with my dad about 4pm today, so did a rushed walk to see everything before it became dark. Was a great experience! Got to see a beautiful sunset and the trails were very accessible (but looked like a hurricane hit it very recently). I was surprised that half of the trails are along side a road, but would go again to enjoy it with less time restrictions.
