shaded boardwalk only open thursday-sunday..not crowded at all.

it's not a hike but a great paved walk. music, fountains, and very clean. bring bread and feed turtles,fish,ducks and just enjoy the great outdoors. I'll make it a date night since it's well lit

Only complaint is not having a pedestrian bridge at Montgomery, where you can sometimes wait over 3 minutes for the light. Watch yourself at this intersection: cars turning right onto Montgomery from central parkway FREQUENTLY do not stop at the red, even with the no turn on red light illuminated.

Beautiful hiking spot. Lots of different ecosystems to see. The boardwalks were well maintained

This place is a gem. Right in the heart of suburbia, yet you feel like you're a hundred miles out. Beautiful walking trail and lots of wildlife.

Slight drawbacks include weekend parking which is across a busy road, but they do provide a free tram on weekends, which is nice.

Check for open days and such as they are limited on weekdays.

I'm not sure I'd recommend driving a long distance, but if you're in the area, it really is a beautiful park.

Cranes Roost is a nice little park in the middle of an urban area. I like to come here to chill. I like to walk at night, and watch the fountain shows. It's a good place for jogging too.

Lovely park, very well maintained. Mostly shaded which is an added bonus, flat, easy, and even stroller friendly. Excellent for kids! The park is closed Mon thru Wed, parking is allowed inside the park on Thur and Fri, and on the weekends the "Weekend and Special Event Parking" is the only parking allowed. You can wait to take the tram which runs every 30-45 min or just walk the tram route which is was we did to add some mileage. The raised boardwalk is wonderful, lots of benches along the way. I can't speak to the restrooms as we didn't need to use them. Very enjoyable! We will definitely do again.

Enjoy looking at the lake, ducks, turtles, cranes and other birds while I walk. There are bathroom facilities which is wonderful. The whole area is always clean & well maintained. It's a great place to walk or run.

Used to go running on this trail when I lived in the area. It was a great trail and received a good amount of use. On nice afternoons/mornings there would be tons of bikers and runners out putting in some mileage. Nice scenery for the most part - does cross a few intersections and can break up a run/bike but they aren't overly prevalent.

convenient. Very well-maintained. A lot of different birds, turtles and fish. Also has built-in step style seating. Great to run up and down!

The was the later part of my 100 mile ride. A few more road crossings than I care for but nice easy pace. Try it out.

Went biking with the family on the Seminole Wekiva trail. This is a very nice, wooded trail with a great park right off the trail. We are geocachers, and we found several of the numerous geo caches along the trail. Great fun!

WOW! For a leisurely bike ride of just over ten miles, my wife and I had a perfectly wonderful Sunday afternoon together. This is a beautiful area with great parking and support facilities.
