Wide variety of native plant species and birds! So excited to see all the restoration progress that's been made and is still underway. Unfortunately my first time hiking 7mi. loop was this June, and the heat was extenuated by the the lack of shade present in the long stretches of open-canopy trail. There really are plenty of shaded benches along the trail, but really make sure you've got enough water- especially if you're bring the pooch

I canoed this river a few years ago, I remember there was a couple of rope swings, saw a pretty big gator and a dam at the end(going east). All in all it's a nice paddle had a good time and there was no one else there so had the hole river to ourselves!

Very nice and peaceful trails with good scenery. There are also some more advanced hidden trails that have very soft dirt and low trees. Overall a great place to go for a short ride or spend and afternoon

Love this trail, almost never anyone on it. The red trail is very sandy but fun to walk. There is even a camp ground that is available for weekends.

Very nice preserve. Lots of birds saw some Bald Eagles and Ospreys. Nice smooth casual loop, great place to take the family.
