    Boardwalk underneath mangrove trees which provided a nice and shaded walkway. Not much wildlife aside from some little crabs and spiders... A nice walk though towards a big pond, lasting about one hou...  more »

    We have made a wonderful walk through this magnificent area. We have especially like the two bars in the water. Here, one has a very nice look. We have however seen not many animals. Still worth this way.

    Fun to go biking in proper Florida nature. Small adventure in Cape Coral and no costs! Well kept park. Also kayaking available.  more »

    We visited this preserve for the first time today. To be honest, it was disappointing. If you're just looking for a shady walk through mangroves, this is the place. As far as seeing wildlife, we saw a total of two ospreys hovering over the cove on the river. Not one other bird. Not an alligator. To see wildlife, you're much better off visiting Six Mile Cypress Slough in Fort Myers. Four Mile Cove does have a couple of nice views of the river from the boardwalk,

    From what I could tell from just the front it seemed like it would be interesting. There is like a little boardwalk that takes you in to walk around to see wildlife. Unfortunately that is where my visit ended since pets are not allowed and I have 2 little shih tzus.

    Terrible experience! We brought a large group to go kayaking during normal business hours and everything was locked up and nobody bothered answering the business telephone or returning our phone call. We tried both telephone numbers and no answer. Their website, sign, and voicemail said they were open. Don't bother wasting your time at this place if you want to go kayaking.

    Nice walk in the mangroves. There are interesting educational signs along the way if it is your first time visiting. Most of the trail is shaded.

    Free parking and a nice, albeit short walk. It's kind of hidden due to location and the relative difficulty of getting there (drive through a strip mall and then a residential area) but it's nice. The boardwalk is in excellent shape. I would like to try kayaking here in the future.
