Walked 5miles to get there and went walking on the Trails for a bit it’s Really Cool Not Much Wildlife But There are Bluejays, I Seen Rabbits, Iguanas I had a great time and I definitely will be back soon.

This place is the best in west palm beach

Every easy for a first timer; mostly flat, a little damp in a few spots, but lots of animals. We saw deer, woodpeckers, cicadas, but no snakes or alligators.

Great trail , fully shaded lightly used lots of wildlife, watch out for alligators on the trail

Beautiful

Great bird watching, gators were nesting on lake banks

For South Florida primative camping, very nice place.

I was the last week end and I think is so beautiful and good place for make off road driving. I was scared of take the ways off road because I was alone with my two guys and now with the rains it’s a lot of mud and pretty flooded. I’m thinking in go again for know better the place when find some friends with 4x4.

relaxing place to visit

The mountain bike trail is the best place to get elevation for runners in south florida. Also great flats for cooldown, into an alligator laden thick foliage lined path.

Great trail a little remote during the week, also watch out for alligators, one day I photographed 4 that we’re alongside or just off the trail. Saw 2 eagles one day.

Nice Florida hike in the swamp!

Out of time, but still want to fit a little Florida Everglades into your visit? This is a great short stroll for introducing visitors — or your kids — to alligators, a Cypress swamp and various Florida birds. Lovely wooden boardwalk with scenic viewpoints, some with comfortable wooden rocking chairs, so you can stay and sit awhile, listening to birds and gators. Very pleasant experience. There are also canoes and kayaks to rent at the trailhead, but nobody was working there when I visited. Four stars, only because trail is so short.

Technical and rooty, but a pretty trail.

Love this place! Trail 6 is my personal favorite! Camping at the campground is accessible and clean. Also close to trails and main grade. It can get swampy off the main grade... just know your vehicles’ limits or you’ll be stuck like Chuck!

It’s located close by to Greenacres Freedom Park, and you can park here to walk to the trail. There’s two ways of getting to the trail, which entrance is located on Pinehurst Drive. If you go the intended route, you’ll have to park and walk to the trail entrance located on the street via the sidewalk. The second way has you cutting Southwest through the soccer field of Freedom Park, and into a side entrance that’s located close to the street.

The actual trail itself is a mountain bike trail that also allows walking, but you’ll need to be aware of your surroundings because bikers here are frequent. Very pretty trail for both biking and walking. There are a good variety of roadblocks to overcome for bikers, like stumps, branches, rocks, & roots. Walkers can experience the same things, but there’s usually a more “mild” trail option to get over any obstacles.
The trail is pretty tight, two people can just about walk abreast but a lot of places will have you dropping down to single file.

Didn’t experience much wildlife on this trail other than a few birds, but there were no bugs so that was nice. It was also nice that even though there were plenty of areas with thick cover, the wind flow was pretty consistent so it wasn’t hot.

I was looking for a forested dirt trail to hike this afternoon, and found this. It was a good choice, the trail is easy to hike. Some roots to look out for, but the trail is nearly all flat. In the background, I heard squealing earthmoving machines across the canal, and the highway is on the other side, so you don’t quite get away from the city, but that is hard to do in South Florida.

It is a multipurpose path, so mountain bikers use it too. I had a few of them passed by me, very pleasant people. Don’t use headsets, otherwise you will not be able to hear them coming up behind you. I hiked on a weekday after Christmas, in the mid afternoon, and I only saw a few other hikers.

The trail is somewhat marked, not all clearly, but good enough. I show that the trail is more than 3 miles though, longer than what I expected.

Closest I've seen to the trails I used to run up north. Very serene with little traffic. The only issue I had was the signage (or lack of) on the trail. Very easy to get confused with where you are and how to find the way out. Even with gps help, I was still making wrong turns.

Did both the main lower trail as well as the upper trail. Good first walk after not doing any for a while.

Nice trail, well maintained, couple mountain bikers out today. Took about an hour to hike. The reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is because it was quite loud with the road next to most of the trail, car noice, construction from a water treatment center. Overall a nice little hike.

Great park for trail running. There is an outer loop that can be used for mountain biking or trail running that is about 5 miles which is very technical with lots of roots. In addition there is an inner loop that isn't technical at all and is partially paved. That loop is slightly less distance. There also is a converted landfill hill that is 2.5 miles of uphill and downhill sections cut into the side of the hill that's around 2.5 miles that you can run as loops. This is unpaved . This trail is shared by mountain bikers but is a blast to run on.

This trail was really nice. Of course it was hot and humid as hell (it's in South Florida during the summer), but the trail was really fun!

The walkways through the marsh were low making it easy to view wildlife. Birds of prey, alligators, lots of turtles.
