I felt like an outside walk through nature after breakfast before heading over to the beach at Delray and this was the perfect spot. When there you would never know you were so close to the I-95, you can hardly hear any traffic. It is...More

IT IS AS THE NAME IMPLYS, SCRUB LAND. Flat and barren land adjacent to an industrial park. Not much to see.

Nice side walk when you are walking for exercise on the El Rio trail (paved for bikers and walkers) between Yamato and Congress Avenues. This detour is quieter and still safe. You should bring water especially in summer. Turtles, iguanas, birds and keep eyes open...More

You can stay as long as you like. A 20 minute walk after lunch or two hours soaking up the natural beauties of the place. The trailhead is just off of Clint Moore and the bonus is the bathroom facilities, which PondHawk didn't have unless...More

Its good they have natural areas, you can see the animals, spiders, snakes and birds. Not that you can't see them in your back yards. But your back yards are landscaped. In the Scrub area its not so neat.

sort of an endless loop, trails, especially the sand ones are not well marked. Fairly sparse and few other runners, joggers, or hikers. Easy to do 5 miles without repeating a trail.

Better than watching paint dry or going to the dentist. BUt that's about it. Trails are rough, not much nature to see, and you hear the roar of the nearby traffic. Go to the beach instead

I was concerned about walking here (female, over 50), when I parked, since it looks so isolated (even though it is a stones throw from I-95). But, not to worry - there were families and singles (both ladies, coincidentally) walking about. But, by no means...More
