  • My husband and I visited shortly after hurricane Irma and the majority of the trail was closed. The area that was open was nice but we look forward to going back when we can walk the entire park!  more »
  • A very nice preserve to take a walk through...My only complaint is the paths not marked to direct you to exit...I was actually lost for 30 minutes trying to exit park...  more »
  • This park has a boardwalk as to not damage the ecological views. Did not see any alligators, but did see many birds.  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.
