    We enjoyes the trail, but as the driver I spent just as much time dodging potholes as I did looking for wildlife. We saw plenty of birds and a wild boar at a distance, no gators. If you are worried ab...  more »

    Always a good excursion. Pack a meal and take the time to picnic along the road. rain or shine the trip is relaxing and enjoyable. There are plenty pf photo ops as well as memories to be made.  more »

    Unfortunately as the weather had been free from rain for several weeks this place was bone dry in some places with only very shallow areas remaining thereby not attracting many waders at all - and cer...  more »

    One of the top Birding hot spots in Florida, especially in the winter. But even in the summer you can find something wonderful, like this White Morph Reddish Egret

    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.

    I really didn't see much wide life but went in the afternoon. Figure the $10.00 just translated into a donation.

    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.
