Some of the trail gets muddy. Nice springs and kayak rental too. Small park with plenty of parking and some boardwalk area. lots of unique birds.

Meh it's kinda scary. It dead ends on 52 west of 19. There is no actual parking lot you are supposed to park outside the gate where 52 ends. There really isn't people there most of the time and there's a lot of homeless in the area. On the "trail", which, due to over growth is hard to navigate, there was empty beer cans. I only did about a half mile before I felt completely freaked out and needed to leave. They need to do some work here and it could actually be a place people would visit.

We love walking this trail with our dog.

Great place to launch off on a kayak. You have two options, go through the springs or head out past the mangrove islands to the gulf. We have seen birds and dolphins when we have been out. Kayak rentals are available for single or tandem. Last boat rental launches at 3pm. Lift jackets and a map are provided.

This section of the Werner Boyce Salt Springs Park was ravaged by fire a few years back. There were many fire breaks cut and the trails left in rough shape. There is plenty of growth and wildlife now but, during high tide and after a good bit of rain, the trails are almost impossible to travel. The Park Ranger at the southern springs entrance, off US19 near Stone Road, assured my wife and I that it was slated for repair and a face lift "soon". It was also acknowledged by the Park Ranger that this section would be connected to the entrance off Scenic Drive near Cinema Drive. I look forward to this parks further development.

My wife and I have hiked this park many times since it opened. The improvements made thus far have been amazing. It is well kept and now features beautiful trails, kayak and canoe rentals, and a bath house. Great for families to explore. Has a lovely picnic area and several benches or covered tables along the trails. It's so nice to have this gem in our area. I can't wait to see the northern section (Black Rail Trail) finished as well. Bring bug spray in the wet season and enjoy!!
