Great trail to see many of the different ecosystems that Florida has to offer, walking from the upland scrub down to the river's hydric hammock. Lots of wildlife to look at from Gopher Tortoises to Wild Boars, the trail is great for experiencing Florida's natural habitats at work. Highly recommended trail with a great visitors center that has many interactive elements and tons of information about Florida's ecosystems.
I went through here during the Space Coast Birding Festival. This is a fantastic area for birding and wildlife--especially along Black Point Wildlife Drive. I saw many different birds--as well as some alligators. The scenery is lovely. It's great for photography.
The Canaveral National Seashore is the Atlantic coastline beyond the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. You must pay an entrance fee to get in. Even if you are just coming to lay on the beach, bring bug repellent, as the sand flies can get vicious. Be warned, certain launches of larger spacecraft will close the area.
While the outer loop in only 1.5 miles, you can easily get 3+ miles out of it by going back through all the small trails inside the loop. While the trail is short, there are a variety of terrains and habitats. Be careful not to step on one of the many gopher tortoises that patrol the sanctuary! There are bathrooms right at the entrance, and a cool little indoor activity center for kids, if you bring small ones along.
