Make sure to bring your bug spray. A fallen tree also blocked the path, otherwise it was well maintained.

This trail was closed for almost a year after Hurrican Matthew destroyed the boardwalks in 2016. It just reopened with brand new boardwalks and looks amazing. This is a super easy trail with water views almost the whole way around. It is an ADA trail, so almost completely flat. Not sure why someone tagged this as "no dogs" because dogs can go anywhere in the park as long as they are on a leash.

This is a nice short loop that we often combine with other walks. Great place to stop and walk when you are in the area.

While all the trails in the park offer some cypress swamp, this trail is cypress swamp scenery most of the way around. There is an observation platform half way around with even better views.

Short and Sweet!!! Can anything a third of a mile really be called a trail? This little trail is beautiful with views almost all the way. Much of the way has boardwalks.
