Large numbers of wildlife, Alligators, Armadillos, Birds of all colors, Barred Owls, and everything that comes with a swamp. Had a great time can't wait to go back on my next visit to Florida.

One of the little-known hidden treasures of Florida. Great hiking, you WILL see an alligator, and many birds and critters native to the state. Beautifully preserved.

Today we visited Circle B Bar for the 1st time and it is beautiful. There is a nice Nature Center that sets up some of the things you may encounter along the many trails. The only restrooms are in this building. The Nature Center is surrounded by many picnic areas. Throughout the trails there are very few benches and no... More

Great time today at Circle B. We saw many beautiful birds and also had a gator cross the walking path. The peace and tranquility is well worth the visit.

We were visiting from Michigan and wanted to take a walk on a nature trail. We had not seen the You tube video of the giant gator that walked across one of the paths in January or I probably wouldn't have gotten my husband to come. Alligators are his least favorite creature and while walking Alligator Alley was saw at... More

I love walking in this place. The trails are nice and yes you can get up close and personal with the wildlife even when you do not intend too. I therefore recommend highly that you keep small children close to you. Pets are not allowed and you will see why if you go there and spend time. I have seen... More

Circle B is consistently one of the best natural areas in which to hike, bird, and photograph the amazing natural beauty of central Florida. Every time I go there I see something amazing and beautiful. The birding is wonderful and strong regardless of the time of year. Breeding limpkins, bald eagles are a few highlights. The gators here are famously... More
