This place gets a bad rap because folks want groomed trails with signs posted everywhere, blah! I have hiked and biked this area and the most appealing part is that it’s NOT marked. Life is an adventure, go explore! There is actually more than 10 miles of trails throughout the park and preserve to hike. In the dryer months the sand can be deep. In the cooler months you can find a lot of birds to photograph on the two lakes and small pond. There is also a swampy area on the NW side that is teeming with turtles and a small gator - great for photos, but you’ll need a longer lens for them.
