You would never know there were major roads around this park, it is so quiet. We saw baby wild hogs, tons of birds, gators and turtles.

Every so often there is some place to sit, but are few and far between. There are some shorter trails.
Is it possible to borrow a wheelchair for a couple hours for my husband who walks with a cane, but with difficulty? We plan to visit January 24. We'd love to do the 1:30 guided nature walk, but I'd be afraid he couldn't keep up with the walking.
