  • One of the best places near North Naples to go get some hiking in and enjoy nature. If you are visiting SW Florida and looking to see some alligators then this is the spot to go. Not to mention this.....  more

  • Been going here for 9 yrs. One of my favorites during week.. so calm and great nature trails. Would not recommend for small children or small dogs.

  • Great spot for bird watching! You dont even have to leave the parking lot to see a lot of birds (in season). Parking lot is gravel so your tires get white but the place is great. And, its free. Recommend bringing good shoes if walking in the trail.
  • This is one of my favorite trail in the area. Guaranteed that you will spot the wildlife including gators. Please give them their space if you come across one sitting on the trail. Respect the fact that you are in their territory! Almost 13 miles of loop if you finish the trail! Lots of birds and other wildlife to see in the further distance so make sure you bring binoculars to have the great time. Get there early in cooler weather and you will definitely come across gators sunbathing! We also came across some snakes so make sure to pay attention to your surroundings! Little children and dogs I would personally not recommend bringing since there are no barriers to protect them except yourself! Get out there, have fun and wear comfy shoes for better experience!
