Excellent area to hike. Many boardwalks thru marshy areas, there are some muddy areas - expect to get your foot ware to get wet and muddy. Some buggy areas, in summer I can see the bugs being a problem. Bring bug spray.
Overall it was an enjoyable hike. Highly recommended!

Love this place with kids. Have gone before and they have many places to see turtles and birds and the boardwalk makes it easy to navigate with children.
