Love the distance and ability to walk or ride bike. Beautiful and relaxing with wildlife and flowering plants. Gorgeous cypresses and yes saw lots of baby alligators.

This trail is ideal to run with dogs. Most of the trail is shaded with green canopy. There is parking and water available (for humans and dogs).

Great trail, sandy but well shaded. There is a portion of the trail that runs along the power lines. Overall it was great.

It was a beautiful trail, well maintained but with the recent rains be prepared to get very wet. I would say 50% of trail you are ankle to knee deep. We will go back when it’s a little dryer.

Top notch

Great series of connected bikes trails running from Weems Road east past the lakes, up through the heavily wooded hills and even across lakes to Billy’s Trail and Alford Greenway. Very diverse topography, and lots to see. There is truly something for everyone on this trail system! It’s one of my “go to” bike trails for a good work out and beautiful scenery. Easy to moderate.

very clean and nice hiking trails

The only thing I can say is that the trails are hard to follow. Otherwise it’s a lot of fun.

super pretty!! had to stop and take some pics. super short trail so had to ride it a few times but the view was worth it

Some beautiful views immersed in nature. Clear path except for occasional flooding that is difficult to pass without getting wet. I encountered several spiderwebs with large spiders across the path. Nearly walking into these guys gave me quite a shock. Descriptive signs about the local flora and fauna were a nice treat.

Love this trail

Absolutley beautiful and historic area!

I wasnt sure about parking and just parked on the cement pad, no body else was there, mid day just as storm clouds were rolling in. Gorgeous path, i got off path more than once following scenery. I saw several large tortoise and a white tail deer. A few really great spots to rest , picnic tables under awning and spots next to river. Yes a few flooded spots but not so bad as a way had not been made manageable today. get out and enjoy. The live oaks and pines are beautiful.

Beautiful trail by the water. Has options to other connecting trails.

Nice trail. Well marked.

It’s a beautifully scenic trail for a good run/walk/hike. Easy course, but some sandy areas make for a small fun challenge every now and then.

Great for seeing wildlife.... especially in the months of January thru May.

Nice trail for biking, lots of alligators. Beginning of trail is a bit traveled.

Beautiful and super easy adventure walk. Well marked pathways with informative signs about the kind of birds and plants you may see on your walk. We even saw a couple of alligators from the observatory!

Summer weekday morning hike. MUST have a quality bug spray for this hike. Beautiful woods and very quiet. Bring plenty of water and food. There are no services available here. Followed the trail to the Tolomato River. It is salt water fed from the ocean so there isn’t much small animal activity. However, there is a lot of marsh land and we came across an alligator on the path. Quite a thrill!!! In summer, the morning can be best as afternoon rain patterns persist.

One of our favorite trails. A little difficult to find the best exit from the end of the outer loop. Easy to moderate.

Nice open trails with a lot to choose from. The West Loop is nice with a view of Lake Jackson. The East Loop is more in the woods. Easy to moderate trails. Good diversity.

Great run along the river. A few down trees on the trail, made for some good hurdles.

Run here every week. Great trail the bridge over Sally Ward Springs gets super slippery, slow down and be careful.

not well traveled or properly maintained the overgrown firebreaks make for a better trail in some places. until maintenance is done you would be better off choosing a different trail.

well maintained trails, nice place to go for a long hike in the shade.

I love it !!!

Awesome trail. Great for running and biking.. Tons of iguanas.

Fun trail for learning about Florida coast wildlife.
