  • Typical Florida Hammock to walk through for half hour or so. Two trails but one was closed for maintenance so we rode our bikes on a short 1 mile trail. It is fine for what it is, but if you're tight ...  more »
  • Inexpensive way to spend an hour, with lots of varied flora, some found only in this area. Worth the two-fifty admission for sure.  more »
  • We took a morning to visit this site. The volunteers were helpful and friendly. The hammocks were nice and gave us a taste of what the unblemished landscape was before the tourist trade hit the keys.  more »

  • We were out of the car for less than a minute trying to put buy spray on and mosquitos started swarming us. We hurried and got back in the car and left. Looks like a cool place but we dont need to be eaten alive
  • We visited during a sailing trip and had the pleasure of stopping in here. So cool to see the untouched nature and wide spread lands.
  • Should have prepared for mosquitoes. Beautiful are for photography.
  • Your trail signs are seriously lacking, we set out doing the short loop and we're on the short loop trail and came upon two conflicting signs. We were totally lost in a serious thunderstorm, we could not find a correct sign, most of the walkways were flooded. We were pretty scared being lost and in a torrential downpour thunderstorm. Thank god we heard traffic on the road and walked .8 miles down the highway to the car. I recommend installing more and better signs as trail markers. Wouldn't recommend. Sorry!
  • Nice nature walk but mosquitoes are bad..came in for vacation me and my family got ate up from the mosquitos
