Completed a 20 mile hike with my son and his Boy Scout Troop. Plenty of trail for the hike with a little duplication. The trail was made up of multiple different materials in different parts - grass, rocks, sea dredge, dirt, etc. Looked like an awesome place for mountain biking, but mostly flat, as usual for Florida. Not a lot of diversity of plants and animals that was readily visible on the hike. Had a few spots where you will likely get wet trying to cross due to water pooling in low areas.
I've never been here but because I drove by it Google seems to think I have. I'm sure that it's great and I'll want to go at some point in the future. Q
Not much shade, the hiking paths are really more like service vehicle utility routes. The one nice area for hiking is very short, goes though a cypress forest, along a stream, but the path in that area is made of a very course gravel, pretty much stone chips, made it a though hike even in good hiking boots. I did get to see two gopher tortoises, and supposedly there is some rare woodpecker in this area, but in didn't see it. I'm not a mountain biker, but maybe this would have been a better path if I was biking it.
Pretty much a dirt road. I did not see trails or tags/signs indicating any trails or restrooms. It is well kept.
Its wide open. Be careful of the sun
