We are not ones who enjoy strip malls or tourist areas, so the opportunity to walk amongst nature on well maintained trails was delightful. Worth the visit for sure.

Take your walk in the morning before temperatures peak to enjoy yourself more. There are multiple trails ranging from 0.5 to 5 miles. Very neat to see FLA natural beauty up close. Take to time to sit in a rocking chair to enjoy the views.
