The trails here are easy, soft, and sandy. Some parts are very pretty by the water. I ran in the afternoon and it was hot, I’d go in the morning next time.

I don’t think it was a moderate hike it was pretty easy but it was gorgeous!

We took my 60+ parents and our 9, 6 year old. We had a great time and were impressed with the elevation level for Florida. The only down side was the trail was right by the road taking away some of the illusion of being off in nature.

I really enjoyed this walk. The lake was beautiful. Enjoyed a lunch with my girlfriend.

Trail bridges are closed on the paved portion and trees have fallen and blocked the path through the woods... very disappointing

Park at Yamato scrub area on Clint Moore and head south. It gets tricky at Yamato; cross the street and go across railroad tracks to pick it up again. I use it as a running trail to Glades and back and finish with a loop around scrub area.

Great palms & not much people

Nice flat run for a visitor to the area. Not busy on a weekday morning, but not scenic either.

We drove up and parked. If you're not a pass holder, you'll need to get an envelope from the deposit box and leave $3. Tear off the stub and hang on your rearview mirror. I took one of my dogs on a Friday morning around 0930. We saw maybe 4 bikers. The paved trail is awesome. Lots of room for bikers to go around you. We walked about 2 miles and took a right and walked another .5 miles to the "beach side" where lots of downed trees are. It's sandy and very beautiful. People started flocking to the area around 11am. Clean, lots of trees and bushery. This will be a regular place to take my dogs for a nice and relaxing walk.

not very well marked once you get to the beach, but the driftwood area is very unique

For an out of towner staying at a hotel next to the trail, it’s pretty nice. Ran part of it this morning and it was enjoyable and peaceful.

Bring bug spray or you'll be keeping a quick pace.

the enterance to this trail is very difficult to find. there is no parking area or anything of that nature that I was able to find at least I spent an hour driving around different parts of this trail just to find a place to park my car that it wouldn't get towed. it says hiking in available but it was primarily bikers and I felt like I was in the way. I wouldn't recommend.

I use this trail as a cardio trail. Nicely paved, not much shade in some places, bring sunscreen and hydrate properly. I can't wait for the entire trail to be completed.

was a nice walk until we found out the bridge was closed till further notice so turned around only got 2 miles in

there is a bench to sit on at the waterfront, perfect for a little break and a picnic lunch

I couldn’t find guest parking at the beginning of the trail and ended up parking in the metered section of the university. All other places seem to require a permit to park. The shared pathway is mostly used by cyclist but we saw a few other people walking. The trail is currently under construction on Yamato, which detours to the main street. Although the entire trail is a paved pathway, I got to see many birds, such as great blue heron, tricolored heron, limpkin, little blue heron, osprey and more. I also added a section of the Yamato Shrubs to the in and out El Rio Trail and ended a little under 10 miles.

The maps are awful and inaccurate and didn’t even match each other! We were so disappointed in this park. The nature is pretty but we won’t be back.

The park name is John Chesnut, without the extra t. (Chesnut, not Chestnut)

A nice little gem of a trail... well maintained and clean. A little of everything to see along the way. Quiet and peaceful. Will be going again!

Tons of geocaches!!!!

Loved the winding trails from Monroe park to Gemini springs and back. Haven't gone the full length of the paved trail yet, but I believe you could easily get in a 15 mile ride if you want to. Very quiet during week days. There are picnic tables and trash cans at a few spots in between, if you're running and want a quick rest. Overall, beautiful and very well kept paved trails. Saw that there were some trails for running, but haven't explored those just yet.

Beautiful sanctuary!

While access from the Magnolia Park is still closed due to hurricane Erma, this trail is accessible using the Lust Road entrance starting at the old pump house. The trail is great for hiking and biking and was in good condition for both.

Start early as this is a great trail to see tons of wildlife. On 2/18/18 we hiked 9 miles total. We hiked 4.5 miles from the pump house to Magnolia Park and back spotting 30 Alligators a water snake and many varieties of birds. Don’t be surprised when some of the gators are basking in the sun right next to the trail.

There are a few shady spots but you will want to bring water, sun screen, and hat for protection from the sun. There are portable restrooms at the pump house but no more facilities until Magnolia Park.

We can’t wait to hike more of this trail North of the pump house on our next adventure.

Frisby Good was ok, but course was unkept and I brushed a plant that caused me welts on my legs. Saw a snake on my way to pick up a disc.

Only got to spend 45 Minutes here. It’s a birding paradise

This is a great hike. My 11 year old son and I did it...out one day, return back the next.

Note that the wooden NPS "Clubhouse Beach" sign marker, which used to be on the prairie behind the beach, was swept away (I presume) by Hurricane Irma. You can see a great deal of storm debris lodged up against the scrub treeline on the north side of the prairie.

Only downside was right on noisy parkway.

I bought a bottle of Ben’s 99% and put it on before this hike. It was in March, so still the dry season, but I had a cloud of mosquitoes hovering about 6-8 inches from my face for much of the way. If you’re at Flamingo and need a long hike, this is it. But it’s not terribly inspiring. One amazing surprise: we saw a Florida panther cross the trail.
