About 50 percent are under water in Feb ( dry month ) and one trail is in total disrepair. Zero trail maintenance since opening. If you're looking for 1.5 mile hike, maybe you can accomplish. To bad this place has not been maintained

wonderful paved multi use trail!

Only got to spend 45 Minutes here. It’s a birding paradise

It was okay, a little hard to follow the route from the app if you don't pay attention to your phone. Your basically using different trails and almost doing a figure 8. Half of the trail is wide open with no shade and small sections of sugar sand. The other half made up for it with lots of shade and trees. I probably wouldn't do this one regularly and might try another one in the area instead.

This is a great hike. My 11 year old son and I did it...out one day, return back the next.

Note that the wooden NPS "Clubhouse Beach" sign marker, which used to be on the prairie behind the beach, was swept away (I presume) by Hurricane Irma. You can see a great deal of storm debris lodged up against the scrub treeline on the north side of the prairie.

This is one of my favorite trails around Gainesville. There's always a lot of birds and alligators and often wild horses to look at. The major draw is the boardwalk which has a bunch of informational kiosks about the park (it's an engineered water filtration system for the Florida aquifer). It's open sun up to sun down and the views are unbeatable. The only issue is that there's no shade on the trails so be sure to bring sunscreen and water.

I ran all the loops and walked the boardwalk for a cooldown for this. You can hike the whole thing in a few hours but the main draw is the boardwalk which you can do in under an hour with stopping to take photos and read the kiosks.

Awesome trails for walking or biking.

We saw a fox cross the road just outside the campground. Other than that, no animal sightings.

It was nice to try once.

Only downside was right on noisy parkway.

I bought a bottle of Ben’s 99% and put it on before this hike. It was in March, so still the dry season, but I had a cloud of mosquitoes hovering about 6-8 inches from my face for much of the way. If you’re at Flamingo and need a long hike, this is it. But it’s not terribly inspiring. One amazing surprise: we saw a Florida panther cross the trail.

trail is great!!!! However, it is shared by mountain bikers and hikers. It is distracting and at times dangerous. If you are hoping to see any wildlife forget it. There should be designated days or something for different uses or designated trails.

Beautiful scenic trail. Lots of people jogging and walking dogs and enjoying life. I will do this again constantly!

Beautiful an enjoyable hike! Not very difficult. Saw snakes, armadillos and heard wild hogs! Beautiful Park!

Enjoyable wooded trail with long boardwalk over swampy area that leads to a small stream.

short paved loop, pleasant walk.

Nice enough trail for a Monday walk, much damage makes the trail an in and out & increases the total mileage.

Boardwalk is closed!

nice place

Fun hike! I actually would say it is easy/moderate due to soft sand, tree roots, and sloping path. Beautiful Florida landscapes and most of the trail all you hear is nature, very peaceful.
