Great easy trails with plenary of scenery!! Beautiful blue river teaming with wildlife! I take my kids here all the time, make sure you stay on the trail as the poison ivy was pretty thick. Also pack the bug spray to keep the mosquitoes and sand fleas away and always check yourself for ticks! The play ground, pool, canoe rentals and general store at the center of the park makes for a fun destination for the kids.

Great trail however the fee is ridiculous. Don’t we pay enough taxes?

This is a fun and easy loop to ride just about any bike on because it’s pretty flat and paved. I don’t have a mountain bike-just a leisurely old thing with a basket and it’s just fine. My only complaints is that there isn’t a lot of shade on the trail at all, but hey, Florida.

If you’re on foot there are some little side trails that are a bit more woodsy and shady feeling.

We went about noon today and though it was very hot, it was a great bike ride. Most of the other local trails are flooded, but there was just one spot where about a half-inch of water covered the paved trail.

It’s an excellent way to see about a half-dozen Florida habitats, from swamp to pine scrub.

Don't be mislead. This is no hiking trail. This is a paddling adventure only.

I love it !!!

Just got back from this trail. Both loops are flooded, but nothing more than ankle deep. The mosquitoes are horrendous. My nine year old was almost carried away by them. We fully sprayed ourselves down before getting on the trail and they laughed at us.
Well maintained trail, $6.00 at the gate, easy parking if you go early. Nice walking by a river. Take a weight belt so the mosquitoes can’t carry you away!

Had a great hike with the kids there. Saw gators, turtles and a hawk. The rapids are beautiful, bathrooms & playground are nearby.

fun but don't go on this trail in the hot weather

fun but don't go on these trails when it's in the 90'

Really shows you what a wild Florida looks like. The rapids make for some great photography and as you make your way through the trail you really do feel one with nature, especially to be so close to home.

Great trail with awesome views of the river and "Florida rapids!" I also did the Baynard trail. Great park!

I did this along with the Baynard and Seminole trails and it was very worth it! Great scenery and good wildlife. The rapids view is very unique to the state and was extremely relaxing to be around. I highly recommend this trail.

Excellent trail! It was well-maintained and very scenic the entire way. I loved walking along the river, which gave some of the best scenery on the entire trail. Saw a few gators and lots of turtles and birds. Definitely a 5-Star trailand I highly recommend this along with the river rapids trail.

This trail is great for bikers, hikers, rollerbladers, and runners who want miles of training on smooth paved road. There’s off the beaten paths too if you want to explore.

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

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

Well maintained narrow trail- beautiful path right up next to the river. Lot's of sawgrass. Saw some wildlife.
