Lovely place to escape from the hustle and bustle of South Florida. Great photo opportunities. Wear walking shoes or sneakers. Not a goog place to bring walkers or wheelchairs. Also, bring along some bottled water and maybe even a light snack.

Terrific place for a peaceful walk, take photos, and just enjoy the quiet. Right off a busy road, but it seems like you're out in the wild. Just beautiful.
