  • Nice hike, with lookouts, informative placards tell you about this mysterious and ancient place of the Calusa Indians. Great wildlife and it's close to the water. 
  • It is a beautiful place and a true testament to the ingenuity of people. However, this site is not (or not only) Calusa. It shares obvious construction techniques with a site in Georgia, and multiple sites in Mexico. Thus not only is this place a testament of ingenuity but also is a testament to the Diffusion of people of North and Central America.
  • A gem of a historical archeology site inhabited by the Calusa people thousands of years ago. Well marked trail with dozens of interpretive signs, benches, viewing platforms and amazing views from the tops of the shell middens. Makes you rethink what you were taught in school that "Columbus discovered America."
  • Nice nature trail and historical info about the Calusa natives, including background on tools, society and shell mounds, iof which there are multiple along the 0.7 miles of flora-rich and pond-strewn trails. About a dozen interpretive placards posted along the trails. Informative volunteer staff at the info center and gift shop. Suggested donations.
