This place has nice bike trails. We saw lots of birds, turtles and small wild life. Also nice place if you just want to walk a FEW miles. No fees to enter or park!

Also a great place to Kayak. There is a tower you can go up in and you can see a nice view of the Skyway Bridge.

We rode bikes there every weekend. We’ll see fish jumping, eagles nesting, snakes, bunnies, and fiddler crabs! It has winding trails along boardwalks and a new tower. We’re lucky to have the gem in our backyard. 😊

Was very scenic walk and really enjoyed the view of Skyway Bridge from the tower. Also the fish were jumping out of the water— how cool.

Yes, absolutely. I usually take my dogs to Desoto Landing though because bikes are allowed in Robinson. No bikes in Desoto. Enjoy!
