nice clean flat dirt road. scenic and quiet. also a paddle trail on the creek with good signs showing rout.

We all enjoyed it! Very tranquil walk

gate was locked so we couldn't drive to the trail head

my favorite trail in central florida...lots of miles, nice straight runs, lots of twists, plenty of wildlife, well marked, great facilities with bike station, restrooms, shower, benches, water.... i love it

This was an incredibly good surprise. Well marked trail and not challenging (although probably more difficult in summer). In three hours, I saw three Florida Black Bears (there’s only about 4,000 of them left) and 6 gators. The bears were extremely close, bringing into play your bear awareness training for sure. Beautiful wetland and forest scenery - and more wildlife than you will imagine. Don’t let anyone tell you Florida hiking is not worth it...

Many of us run this trail very often, it's really varied with some hills, views of lakes and wildlife.

Easy, lots of twists and turn, not as flowey, but none the less fun. They are adding new additions all the time

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.

due to weather the boardwalk has been tornapart and you can only walk a quarter mile out.you will see part of the boardwalk in the lake and the observation tower you cannot reach.

We originally were going to rent bikes and ride the trail, however ended up taking a 2 hour tram tour. We are so glad we did. The guides were knowledgeable and shared so much information about what we were seeing. We saw so many types of birds and many gators!!

Wet in a few areas. Ran out of phone battery unfortunately, so didn’t record full trail. But beautiful—like walking on the moon—completely alone on the beach and trails. There’s an incredible beach access near topsail hill.

a nice 3 mile trail in Lithia. several side trails lead to some nice places by the river. saw a lot of animal tracks, wild flowers, and beauty berries. the county rates it as strenuous but it is easy.

Loved the walk. The beach is beautiful. My only complaint is that it could have been longer.

very nice got to see a few snakes. definitely single track my dog didnt want to walk next to me but had a blast as well.

I hiked this trail yesterday, Nov 28th.

It may be rated as easy, but it definitely is not at this time! Most the "trail" is in ankle to knee deep water. It is hard to find where to go in many parts.

Once you reach the beach it is amazing! Shells everywhere and mostly untouched beach as it is so secluded. Definitely worth the trip if you are adventurous!

Great walk through lush cypress and palm jungle. Lots of birds. Saw egrets, herons, a bald eagle and several large woodpeckers, plus a red-shouldered hawk close to the boardwalk.

Always a great hike

Nice, easy, boardwalk trail through a thick forest. Listen to all the sounds. This place is alive!

This is one of the coolest trails I have been ever been on simply because of the wildlife. Alligators, turtles, fish, birds… Everything. It is amazing even for a short trail.

This trail is so beautiful. Pictures don’t do it justice.

Great place in the flat lands of Florida to walk up and down gentle slopes. Nice place to see birds, turtles, snakes and alligators too.

Awesome

Nice easy walk in the woods. Last little bit of the trail is still closed.

My first hike ever. Was at night but was a great trail for what I done of it. Would definitely do it again

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!

@swamp_stompers had a great time today hiking this beautiful scenic trail. Lots of people out today taking in the sights. We went to the left first and got to come back with a lovely breeze from the water. Didn’t see any bears but spotted a Pygmy rattler and a cottonmouth. Very rooty so your feet end up hurting by the end of it all. Well marked and easy to navigate.

Did not get a 5 star because of the bridges being poorly kept. Otherwise loved the trail! I give it a 4.5

Not private.... follow directions and you will get here! It is a walking park with sidewalks, basketball goals, tennis courts and playground... not a trail. No shade!
