Easy trail board walk type.

not very well maintained but beautiful scenery! the lake was pretty :)

Trail was nice—we didn’t see very much wildlife, just one osprey. Probably the time of day we were here. :)

Good hike. Boardwalk was in good condition. The mangrove trees keep it fairly shady. Not too exciting, but a nice walk in the afternoon.

Not dog friendly, pretty long so prepare accordingly. Dead end at one of the trails.

Never saw a creek bed. Starts off as a real trail with some sandy spots but then at a mile you get to a point where it just becomes tire ruts in a sandy-dirt mix. There are cut offs but they all lead to ruts also. No views or birds, no water nothing. I’m guessing it is still a work in progress or hope it is.

Perfect trail to walk..

Nice short trail with good view of the river at the end. Lots of spiderwebs so if you’re tall watch out!!!

Short wood cover trail with a nice water view at the end!

This was a decent trail. Well marked and clean.

great walk for dogs.

It’s a beautiful and nicely shaded. Easy walk just to get out for a bit. I would recommend to visitors.

Very enjoyable walk on a winter day.

Fun stroll on a boardwalk. Great for families. It gets busy in the winter and loud. I like it better in the slower months.

AP says dogs allowed on leash. When we arrived it clearly states NO PETS.

We all enjoyed it! Very tranquil walk

Fantastic for a short, quiet walk. There is a tower here that goes up a few stories so you can look down at the mangrove forest below. Ends at a gorgeous waterway off of the Caloosahatchee River. Great little gem in the Cape.

Fantastic trail a hidden gem amongst Cape Coral city life! Easy hike mostly wooded so good for the bright Florida sun. About a mile in one comes to a path of mostly sugar sand but that challenge just makes the trail all the more fun! Looks like there is some flooding in the summer months but definitely a great trail for the dry seasons! There are also some off trails that stray from the main trail and seem to go along old creek beds exciting if one wants to add a bit more adventure to their hike!

This is a beautiful trail in the heart of town. it's an easy walk but there are some places with sand. I love taking my dogs here!

Nice peaceful trail.

I've been going to this part for over 14 years even when I was pregnant with my two kids it's a beautiful peaceful walk through a shady mango Trail with plenty of seating areas yes during the winter it is a lot more Scenic with flowers and growth due to Florida blooms during the winter yes the summer days are hot but there is a lot of shade on the trails if you don't want to walk the trail you can always rent a kayak that is right there and they will give you info to go through the whole Four Mile Cove it is a bit of a challenge due to that one part you get to this secret hidden Trail and you drag your kayaks I believe 800 feet its not much really not and it can take you all the way out to the river you also pass what we call the bird sanctuaries that our house like platforms on the water you can have lunch chill out have fun with the kids. go fishing and if you stay long enough you will eventually see the wildlife in emerge I've seen dolphin otters raccoons end of countless Birds and of course the Florida Gators Bountiful of fish in the area I have two beautiful girls and they absolutely love going on these trails with me and kayaking but we also can't forget the great monument that was dedicated to our freedom and a nice sweet history and dedicated names of our standing Heroes I heard you to actually taken all what you can yes come prepared with bug spray if need be during summer months but definitely a wonderful place to go

Tons of mosquitos make sure you come prepared but it is a beautiful walk, lots to see.

It was nice to try once.

Nice boardwalk... just a note. No Jogging allowed. Fairly well traveled, pleasant walk.

Boardwalk through mangroves.Not much to see until at the piers that over look the river

The only thought that came to mind during my walk was "one can really breathe out here"

Not much to see. Maybe in the winter time there will be more animals. They do need to clean up some of the trash that comes in.

It is a nice trail. It was a hot day today but there was plenty of shade from the trees. Definitely worth coming here again.

Took a walk on Memorial Day morning, just after sunrise. I must have been the first one into the Preserve area, took advantage of a quiet walk. Being new in Florida, it's wonderful to be able to learn and visualize factors of the local ecosystem by visiting in parks and preserves such as this one.

Decent hike through the mangroves on a man made path. Did this on Thanksgiving morning when it was cool. Wouldn't want to do it in the dead of summer with the standing water and all the mosquitoes. Had a couple of piers built to walk out into the inlets on the river.
