we did the orange, green and being trail. it's an easy trail but the problem is that it is not well maintained.keep you hands and legs covered as you might get hurt with shrubs while walking. better carry a machete to clear the way as you walk. look out for the thorns and ticks. carry a strong insect spray. not much to see as the area is full of mud and swamps.

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.
