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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

Absolutely beautiful South Florida trail with loads of pretty scenery. Big open blue sky and neverending reflections on the water. Still a lot of mud and squelching. Water a foot high in a few places on the Apoxee. Saw hogs! :)
