Nice flat hike with wide, well maintained trail. Suitable for all ages. Trail is meant to be done in a counter-clockwise fashion if you want to follow the narrative on the trail signs

A great trail to enjoy nature. Trail is very level and not difficult to walk/hike. A large number of native plants and quite a few birds. Take water, take your time and enjoy.

Flat and easy, this is suitable for all ages and hiking abilities. I thought seeing so many armadillos along the path was cute... until I read that there has been a leprosy outbreak in Florida that is likely tied to spitting armadillos. Be careful out...More
