Hiked it with two friends this morning. I've been wanting to hike this Trail for a long time and it was absolutely beautiful! The only Wildlife that we saw were many many birds and a snake in the water. so much diversity in the landscape. we hiked it counterclockwise like a previous reviewer suggested. there was no real flooding but definitely some water spots on the trail but they were easy enough to walk around. Just don't wear your best shoes.

Hiked 5 + miles here today. It was absolutely beautiful. We were there at about 8:30 am and saw a small water snake and tons of birds. The Apoxee trail had a sign at either end saying something like it was closed due to weather damage. We walked on it anyways and can't figure out why it was closed. There was no real flooding, just some large puddles in some areas. A beautiful hike. We picked up a bit of garbage along the way as I always have a bag with me.

Favorite place to hike. 10/15/2018 not flooded but some construction on Owahee portion. So much wildlife to see! Boars, snakes, turtles, gators, frogs, toads, birds, etc.

This place is the best in west palm beach

It was a good trail!

It says no pets right on the front even tho it says dogs on leash on here. Why the heck.

Very relaxing you can definitely hear the birds around late afternoon.Nice houses surrounding the trail,cabbage palm trail was awesome.The more you explore the better.Not too long of a trail and not too short.

Was an awesome experience. This particular trial is located at the Nature Center. There’s ponds, wetlands, seen a couple of Gopher Tortoise, there’s a deer observatory (I didn’t see any deers on this visit), many plants and informative signs about the native plants. I will definitely return. Had no clue an area like this existed in our city. There’s some paved and off-road areas so wear approach shoes. There’s benches throughout as well to rest, and they lend binoculars for free. I absolutely loved the walk on this trial.

I can't give this more than one star, because we only got about 50 feet in before we were met with a flooded trail. Planning on going back in the dryer months and updating this rating.

It was a nice trail, but flooded for most of the hike. Planning on visiting again in the dryer months and actually completing it!

We went hiking, but we saw a few bikers, who were respectful of us, which helped make for a great experience.

I wish I could give this a higher rating, but we only made it about halfway through.

love the trail. Great for hiking or biking. Lots of wildlife

Another reviewer on here stated that it's a 2 mile loop, but I want to clairfy the loop is 2.8 miles, but the dead end stretch at the end is 1.1 miles out and then back again, making the trail over 5 miles. Had a great time nonetheless.

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

loved this park. it is giant with a ton of walking trail options.

Great bird watching, gators were nesting on lake banks

The Hog Hammock trail is a 2 mile loop. Almost entire trail is shaded with tall trees. In a couple of places along the trail, there were small pools of water due to rain but we were able to get around it easily. There are two resting huts along the way. Overall an easy hike.

Close to home, swamp feeling not far from the city. Perfect for hiking or biking. Lots of wildlife.

For South Florida primative camping, very nice place.

Love this area!

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.

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!

Flat, out and back trail and loop. Good place to get a little exercise. Abundant shade. Some places for birdwatching. Much of the trail is framed on either side with pretty high saw palmettos and bushes. Bring bug spray. I saw maybe a handful of people out there on a Monday morning. Not crowded at all.

Great for off road bicycles.

Hiked this trail a few weeks ago with my wife and 1 year old. Half of the trail was submerged under water and it is a a bit difficult to cross in some areas, highest point was knee deep. Saw a lot of birds: woodpeckers, aninghas, coots, egrets, great blue herons, and falcons. Also saw two alligators and spotted hog footprints in the mud.

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!

Great trail but repeated long stretches (20/30/40 ft) of flooded areas within the swamp, 6”+ deep. Found a big turtle in the middle of the trail, submerged, swimming, watch your step!
Dirt road portions around the periphery are fine.
