great well maintained trail. perfect for taking the kids or a afternoon date. The overall trail is not challenging. it has distance and this is the only possible challenge. They have done a excellent job of maintaining it with the past hurricanes. All and all the hike is enjoyable and low impact.

Super chill. It's crushed gravel hard/pack and some two-track roads. Very well marked and maintained. Lots of beautiful scenery. We saw a juvenile alligator. Bring bug spray!

I ran this trail and it was very nice, a few areas grown up but overall great. I believe it is long, I didn't even go on all the side trails and got 10 miles. Watch for gators

Great trail well-maintained just noticing a lot of damage from the hurricane. It's clear and you can walk the whole trail. Very easy trail.

Great refuge for hiking, biking, and even paddle boarding. We did a 6 mile hike in the refuge, some trails are gravel, others grassy. Lots of different routes to chose from (maps available at the parking area). Great spot for bird watching. Bring water and snacks if you'll be out for awhile - there are no facilities or concessions.

Flat and enjoyable. We saw lots of birds (incl. bald eagle) and deer. Bugs spray would be necessary in summer.
