    This trip was amazing. I think it's very different to take this tour in the summer times when it's rainy season than in the dry season, because it's so much water in the park and you are driving with ...  more »

    Genuine, natural southwest Florida pine Flatwoods and cypress stands. Very pristine. Deer sightings are plentiful.

    An experience for those wanting to see what Florida's ecology is all about in this area now managed by the Florida Forestry Service. A 90 minute ecotour by a windowless bus of the area ($24) will allow close viewing of the wildlife and fauna of southwest Florida in this ranching and timber operation area. A several mile long public hiking trail here (free) winds through Florida pine land forest. There is also another longer free public hiking trail called Footprints, a few miles north of here on Bermont Road and about a halfmile east of highway 31. Best times for hiking are the dry winter and spring seasons as summers will find trails flooded.

    This review is about the foot prints hiking trails, ,this is a great trail if you like primitive hiking trails, secluded and you are usually the only one there, consider taking a GPS or compass as there is a possibility of getting lost here.
