Nice place bamboo plants all over

This one of my go to hikes. It’s not marked very well but you cannot really get lost. Not much shade, bring your water.

Boring trail for me. I also don’t think it’s moderate, more like Easy.

must have recently had a controlled burn.

It was pretty disappointing. Most of the trail was a boring dirt road through a flat area of scrub brush. There was an interesting part near the river, with lots of crabs scattering and mangroves. The trails were hardly marked and it was difficult to figure out which way I was going. I ended up only running 3 miles instead of 5. Basically I ended up hot, sweaty, and pissed off.

Came here with my son. Ice walk up near the river. The trail is pretty rustic. Good for running.

A trail you can bring your dog on. Hard to beat that. It otherwise would be a 3 or a 4.

Nice easy nature trail along the river. Plenty of wildlife.

i enjoyed it but my little dogs didn't. way to hot for them. we cut on walk short because no shade to take a break from the hot beaming Florida sun.
leave dogs home unless it's during cooler weather. i am going to return with out the dogs for sure.
i want to do entire trail. you have to pack a lot! of water. hydrate hydrate hydrate hydrate...wear a hat...n sunblock. also bring a fully charged cell phone just in case of emergency.
you never know...
other enjoy. it's quiet... peaceful n if you're in birds.... flowers...mud...sand... your going to enjoy your hike.

The hike is ok. Not too much to see. The scenery is a little redundant. This trail is not our favorite because of the amount of horse flies! Yikes!

My family had a great time. There was a lot of water but all is fine and it was a beautiful day.we didn't see any birds. We hiked during the middle of the day.

Very charming historical site. The natural trail is not that long, but there is plenty of wildlife. It is a great option for young children and the elderly. You can also kayak. The charm is really the old structures and welcome center with a documentary screening. Best time to go is early spring.

Great little spot! The historic portion was neat, although not the main reason we went. The nature trail is short but you can see lots of little critters (we saw tons of butterflies, a snake, geckos, and a tortoise). We actually saw a lot of the staff and they were very helpful and informative. Cost is $5 for a car. Next time we'll rent a canoe ($5/hr, $25/day) - the Estero was calm and beautifully wooded in the area. Will definitely go back.

A great change from the beach and has an amazing historical site. The run/hiking area is a little over 2 miles but from what I could find used map my run app to track it. I would recommend this site for family or just a good little trail run. Great access to the Estero River, camping and kayaking or canoeing. $4 daily access to the park. Check the web for activities farmers markets, art shows etc.

This is an awesome nature trail with some history at the end, depending where you start. Good morning or afternoon light walk/hike.

This trail has 3 different length loops and one out-and-back trail to the Estero River. It was a great flat hike with salt flats, mud, and grassy sand trails. Will be very muddy after a rain shower. Take binoculars if you want to see some Bald Eagles located on the Blue Trail to the river. Trail head is located almost at the end of Broadway street next to the power line junction off of Rt. 41. The trails are on Google maps. We took our two German Short Haired Pointers along and they had a great time when it was time to jump in the river.
