The trail was clean and well maintained. There was a lot to see and learn about the trees and plants that are on the island. The only bad part was that the far part of the trail washed out, so we didn't get to walk the whole loop, but we still enjoyed it.

A Decent Stroll park but sometimes this full loop can be flooded with water make sure you check fellow walkers before attempting. Interesting we could see so huge spider nets along the path, When we visited it was very quiet with less Birds but most of the walk way is covered with trees so even on a hot day its... More

Overall, not much to do here but worth a stop if you are driving through Key Largo. If you've seen Mangrove swamps elsewhere, this is no big deal but, I did manage to see a Mangrove Skipper which was fun for me, as I'm always looking out for butterflies.

The path is wide, the terrain is fairly level. Easy walking. Bring water and your sense of curiosity along !

This is a very nice 2 1/2 mile stroll through this state park. Something new for a midwestern hillbilly! You can never learn enough about the ecosystem that makes the Florida Keys tick. There is so much more to do if you only open your eyes. This little park is no exception.

There are 1 1/2 mile and 3 mile walks. We took the shorter one but as pleasant as the walk was there was not much to see.

We didn't know what to expect but this was a neat park. Plan on walking a good bit to see the whole park.

The trail is just a green tunnel through a former housing develpment. There is an old man made canal through the center. I would not call it scenic. I visited ion December 26 and there were still mosquitos. There's really nothing interesting about it. I say a total of one bird on the loop so there isn't any wildlife to... More

You park outside and pay via the honest route. You pay $2.50 per person and put it in an envelope and away you go with your walk. We were there early morning and bugs were way down. This was an old neighborhood that was purchased and all homes were demolished to allow the natural habitat that is indigenous to the... More

I parked at the front gate. Like most Florida parks, I had to place money in an envelope to enter the park. I arrived shortly after dawn, when I would have seen or heard the most birds and animals. The walk was uneventful, but pretty. This is a botanical garden, so they do not manage for wildlife. The paths were... More
