Great for nature lovers!

Short and sweet loop. Great boardwalk trail. Definitely bring bug spray..

Great spot for birds. Try riding a bike through the driving trails for a good ride.

While the birding and views are incredible, the bugs are AWFUL. I expected (and really wanted) more trails but walked along the gravel road for a while, instead. When my dog and I got back to my car, I found 4 ticks on me and over 30 ticks on my dog. I highly suggest just going here for a scenic drive (it is worth going to see), an in-your-car picnic, or make sure you put some oregano or grapefruit and peppermint essential oil on you to repel ticks and mosquitos if you get out to walk around.

A nice mix of water and woods. This trail was a joy although way too short.

A nice walk into the marshland. Starting from wildlife drive, the trail crosses a few hundred feet of boardwalk before hitting dry land. Then the trail splits into a loop, following waters edge first on the left trail and looping back through a more wooded trail.

Trails are okay. Nice view of the water but the bugs are awful. Couldn't enjoy much because of this. However, did drive on the one loop and this was quite nice. Safe from the bugs!

very beautiful

By the time we got to this pool they were all starting to look alike. The name, "Bear Swamp" is really cool.

Another nice little trail into a 30 foot steel tower. The views are incredible.

All three of the 30 foot steel towers offer incredible views. This on is no exception. The little trail in is nice too.

This loop is closed off so you have to do it on a fat tire bike or in a big letter C to go by car. I loved the hiking trails too.

Do this by car or fat tire bike. It is a gravel road. There are a lot of nice side trails you will want to explore.

This is the grand tour of Bombay Hook. There are several nice side trails, three of which are 30 foot lookout towers.

I spent two days in the park and hiked most of the short trails. They are all easy.

Great times went multiple times over a few weeks, Great at sunrise and set(pictures are amazing) We saw many water foul and other animals. We were however fed upon by mosquito's. We were prepared the second and third trips with bug spray and multiple layers however this did not work we all felt them through our clothes. Stock up on some good repellant.

Recommend a lot of bug spray.

We hiked around one of the pools following along the auto route. This route is a level one way gravel road. Not much too it. Lots of birds along the way.

There really isn't much for hiking. It's mostly a drive, very scenic. I didn't find an 8 mile hike anywhere. The longest I found was 1 mile. It was still beautiful! Make sure you take bug repellent though!

If you are interested in birds, particularly waterfowl, you will enjoy the park; however, for the purposes of hiking, the trails (with the exception of the Boardwalk Trail, which was perfectly marked) were relatively unmarked; the map was not correct in terms of direction or relative distance. The mosquitos were outrageous, despite using spray. I'm not a novice outdoorsman, and did not find this endearing. The flora and fauna, however, were enjoyable. We were greeted by a red fox, pelicans, egrets, sandpipers, herons, and more on the trails. There was wild rose mallow (hibiscus), goldenrod, sand pine, wild cherry, and a variety of other plant life.
