  • Well maintained boardwalk for the majority of the trails. Nice island flora and fauna.
  • Nice place to 🚶 walk trails and boardwalk. Leads to Overlook dockhouse. You can also canoe or small ⛵ boat to docks
  • During our stay in Fort Myers, we often set off on foot, open to anything that crossed our path. So happy we ran across this preserve! Very relaxing and the trail is really accessible.
  • Beautiful little 1 mile round walk mostly shady and perfect for a little break from the beach life.
  • The boardwalk is a nice walk through mangroves where you can see some wildlife, like the tiny crabs. The dirt trails can be quite muddy if there's been rain in the recent past and it would be better to stick to the boardwalk unless you don't mind the mud.
