Fall time of year so not a lot of leaf cover at walking level allowing a nice view of the deep woods. Baby alligator hanging out in the marsh area was cool. We did the long Lady Bird loop. We’ll be back to hit the other loops.

My favorite trail in the area! Mostly shaded, therefore it's great even in the summertime. I take my baby with a stroller and use the main paths, yet there are plenty of smaller trails that offer more advanced hiking. The only cons are the small parking lot that's easy to pass by and beware of snakes.

Beautifully shaded paths. Muddy after rain. Don’t forget mosquito repellent. Enjoy the nature sounds and serene atmosphere. Nicely kept with lush nature and unexpected views.

Lovely nature all around; the wet lands, trails, prairie, plently of well situated seating areas and decks to watch the bissons, the lake and prairies. Love the old sugar mill and the sugar cane garden. My favorite was watching the prairies smothly dancing along with the calming breeze, the overall experience was worth it!

Winter hike at our local nature center. Clear, crisp weather after a rainy week. The trail was in good condition with just a few spots of standing water. I could hear a huge chorus of tree frogs and quite a few birds. Wish I'd brought binoculars!

Start out clockwise by taking the Lady Bird Trail to Karankawa Trail to pass the lowest lying areas first — often standing water on the east side of the loop near the Interpretive Building.

This is a great very enjoyable walk/hike/backpack, whatever you are interested in. I have been several different time now with my son and with my wife as well. It is so well maintained and everyone is super friendly and helpful. There is an observation center where you can go inside and someone is usually there to show and let you touch a small baby alligator. There are snakes behind glass observation windows also. Along the trail there is also an old “Homestead House” setup, an old “Blacksmith shop”, old glass front gas pump, an old windmill, and many other old time set ups to look at. There are some Buffalo that you can see and a look out deck where you can watch them. I can’t say enough about this place. It’s so worth the trip. We go at least twice a year.

$4 admission was worth it. You have to go into the visitor center and pay admission in order to access the trail (no skirting around it, haha). There are actually three loops available to run/explore. Garmin GPS tracked them all at 4 miles, but it was weird cuz it nailed the distance correctly when I walked but shortened the distances when I ran. Anywho, it was a great and enjoyable outing.
