nice scenery you won't get bored but if you're hoping for jumps or downhill trails you'll be disappointed it's relatively flat but there is some awesome terrain so much gravel that it's fun just to hit the brakes and slide on turns. Then there is alligator lake there is a bridge in the middle of the lake it says not to ride your bike on bridge. didn't stop me from going full speed across it :) worth going at least a few times

Perfect weather for biking. Lots of birds and reptiles were around. My 12 year old son loved it and so did I.

Great place for a pleasant and easy walk. Appreciated the markers identifying trees, shrubs, and flowers. Picked up a bird identification guide. Enjoyed my visit.
