“A Sanctuary!”

Circle B Bar Reserve

Reviewed 12 March 2018 via mobile

Wonderful place to walk around and view wildlife. Plenty of picnic tables here would be a fun place to enjoy outdoor dining. Just a note, porta potties are your only restroom source when the visitors center is closed!! Bring water to drink and sunscreen and bug spray! Paths around wetlands are gravel and rough. We saw wild pigs on the pathways as well as armadillo, alligators, marsh rabbits and many birds. A word of advise, some narrow trails like Marsh Rabbit have gators that “block the trail” while sunbathing making your back tracking trip pretty long. Lots of owls right now. Plan on spending at least 3-4 hours and maybe longer. We arrived at sunrise and enjoyed the tranquility.

There is an information center where you can get advice on where you want to walk in terms of what you want to see. We took one of the trails and it was great, level so everyone could walk and lots of birds for the photographer in the group. There were other paths we would love to go back and take. No alligators this trip, but I'm told they have quite a few. Later in the season, you might need bug repellent. Take some water if you are going to walk a long distance and wear comfortable walking clothes.

Our first time here. We had heard so much about it. A late afternoon hike brought us to observation deck.

Great place for a hike. Lots of alligators to see. The trails are well maintained. Some trails out in the open but also a lot are nice and shaded. Great place for taking pictures.

Nancy was a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable about the birds and we saw two eagles! Circle B is incredibly beautiful, breathtaking in so many areas. The tram seats 9. It was practically impossible to get a reservation.
