  • This 7-mile, one-way drive is an excellent place to view birds and other animals. You can drive at your own pace, but be aware there is always that person that wants to go faster than you! Some of the...  more »
  • Wonderful nature drive. Saw lots of birds and a couple of alligators. Reminded us of the way Florida must have looked before development.  more »

  • Beautiful drive and preserve. I'm very glad it exists. Unfortunately, in June there isn't much to see here. Viera Wetlands is *much* more active.
  • We really enjoyed this drive! We wish we could have seen more nature but I think due to time of day and weather most of the animals were not around. Also, I am sure the wildlife would be much better here during the migratory season! Either way the drive was still wonderful! There were a few small trails with observation decks/observation tower that we really enjoyed. The scenery was beautiful even without seeing birds and animals. It was nice to see different types of lands (swamps, meadows, pinewood flats, etc.)
  • Absolutely the best Wildlife experience we had in Florida. Wonderful drive and we saw over 20 species of water birds. There are signs clearly marking when it's a point you should see birds which made it very easy to spot so many beautiful birds. The drive is about 30-45 mins if you go right through and there are little side pull off spots so you can get out of your car and observe. Totally recommend this drive as a must do when visiting the area.
  • Our absolute favorite nature and wildlife drive. If you love nature , birding and/or photographing them, this is the place for you. It is a one-way gravel road drive and when people drive the posted under 5 mph the dust levels are at a minimum. New or old to Florida, you will see something new every time you come. American Alligators, Reddish Egrets, Great Blue Herons are some of our favorites.
  • Interesting drive through the wildlife refuge
