A pleasant walk through cypress, life oak, and flowers of all sorts adorned with spanish moss. The birds are wonderful, and very unafraid. We got lots of pictures, and were enchanted by the many views of all kinds of southern nature.

This is a great place to spend time. Nice walking trails and a lot of wild life, especially birds. I took a friend from out of state so he could see some alligators. We weren't disappointed. We returned a couple of times during his stay.

We love going here for quiet walks and viewing nature. Alligators, wild pigs, all sorts of birds, flowers and plant life. Plan on making several more trips back here.

They have a large parking area. It should be OK.
