Nice restrooms at the South end, together with shady picknic areas with access to the beach. There is ample parking. The reported trail is broken at the gulf side by resorts and condos that have built sea walls well into low tide. Hikers should be prepared to swim to get across.

A nice 1 mile loop trail.

The trails were heavy with water, which made me not do the blue trail. I turned around after running into a coyote since I was solo and about to walk through a clearing. The trails are challenging. Be ready to have your shoes and socks drenched. I also recommend bringing poles to check the ground before stepping on some areas, or scaring snakes off. I saw lots of birds, a few gators (off of the trail), 0 snakes, 1 coyote.

I didn't like that part of the trail winds along the road, but during the summer months there isn't much traffic to disturb you. Always bring rainproof gear while out in florida summers! There weren't many mosquitos or bugs.

OK this is the first time I walked in the water of any depth. It was just over my ankles but I was a little nervous. You could see the trail. In the tower is amazing. Saw some deer.

A really beautiful state park with lots to do. They charge 4 dollars to get in and take cash or credit. I did a short hike and wish I planned my day better so I could have done a longer one. It was extremely hot and there are some exposed parts on the trails so bring lots of water and make sure to wear sunscreen.

Beautiful. Lots of wildlife and shells. Nice walking. Sand bars to wade out to. Amazing!

Good for walking and biking. Good mix of paved and unpaved trails. All flat. Good views of lakes and streams (Braden River?). Dog Park and playground at one end.
