Went walking here for the first time and it was excellent. A mix of concrete in the woods trails and more traditional pine straw on sand. There is a mix of shorter and longer trails so you should be able to find any length you're...More

We stopped by here just before sunset and enjoyed the hike. Some of the trails are cement and very accessible. There is an overlook over water as well.

There are quite a few picturesque areas in Frenchman's for family photos - I've taken many family pictures for holiday cards here. Nice pathways that go rather deep into the wooded area, with some nice boardwalks. One cute little area overlooks a pond - could...More

As its name suggests, Frenchman's Forest Natural Area is a place to wander through the local habitat. Don't expect a theme park.

We did this walk a couple times while we were in the area. The parking lot men are weird - don't know what's up but I noticed single people coming in for exercise walks going right past them so must be the norm. The trails...More

It's nice to get away from the street grids and condos and wander through a wild landscape in a quiet area. That said, the paths and boardwalk are a bit rundown, and not a ton of effort has been put into guiding a visitor through...More

This is a 158 acre hammock, what Florida looked like before development. Nice urban oasis to get away from the glitz and sprawl of the Palm Beaches. There is a paved interpretative walking path, and multiple unpaved walking paths, ranging from 0.6 to 1.6 miles....More

Came to this well-kept park. Doing some Geocaching. If you don’t know what that is this may be a good place to start. Had no trouble around the park, beautiful scenery. Glad I came.

Some creepy men hanging around. Walked past them sitting in their cars and found a very nice path. Walked through the woods, found an awesome snake skin 5.6 ft long. Saw a fox, eagle and an owl. A cool ribbon snake was warming itself on...More

We live nearby. This is a very well kept hiking trail, easy and relatively short. The environment is pleasant and interesting even for the area native. So if you are close, definitely try it for an outdoor activity.
