Very easy trail. You have great views of the Myakka River. We took our dog and she loved it. Most of the trail had a nice canopy. There was a good bit of standing water and a lot of mosquitos. We very much enjoyed that it was quiet with no one else present. The trail is well maintained and marked. Perfect trail for all ages as there are benches throughout. We did not see any alligators or any other animals for that matter.
