The Robinson Preserve is a must-do when in Bradenton! They have a 3 mile hiking trail that is beautiful or you can rent kayaks for $32 for 4 hours. I did both. You need to book the kayaks a day in.... more »
Definitely in my Top 3 favorite places locally to walk, jog, bike or kayak. Great by myself because I feel safe and great with the family because we all love it. Robinson's sets the bar high for preserves. Wish there were more just like it. Hoping they continue to set an example, environmentally, for the future! 💙
North entrance has a tall observation tower. Restrooms. Nice dirt paths easy for walking and biking. South end has the "nest". Climbing area kids will love. Adults are able to walk around up there too
