Beautiful experience if your not afraid to sweat on those trails,
Wonderful place to check out the local flora and fauna. There are miles of trails with descriptions of the local plants and animals, a turtle pond, observation tower, mangrove swamp boardwalk, and many more sights. Everyone there was exceptionally nice, helpful, and informative. They have separate areas foot edible plants, poisonous plants, and even invasive species. If you're visiting the Governor's Harbour area, you must check this out!
Really cool place to visit. Interesting information and honestly by the highlight of the visit was speaking to the local who worked there. His knowledge of herbs, was really enlightening. If you like walking trails, being educated on history and science, this place is for you.
Fascinating! Will be back tomorrow.
