Brought our bicycles to ride the nature trails and saw a lot of wildlife (gators, eagles, turtles, and many species of birds). The biking was fine, although sometimes some spots were crowded but easy to maneuver around. Don't forget to pick up a map at the information center which was very helpful. Bring your binoculars and plan on spending about three hours. If you have less time, focus on Marsh Rabbit Run and Wading Bird Way.

This reserve has so many different birds! Was lucky to see a baby horned owl in its nest. Alligators are around, sunning themselves. Great hiking trails for birding

What a beautiful day we had exploring Circle Bar B. The trails are well marked. The nature center has trail maps. The nature center is clean and informative. There are picnic tables available and porta potties. There are restrooms in the nature center when it is open. Beside enjoying hiking, we saw a variety of birds, squirrels, quite a few turtles and gators. We also say saw a family of wild pigs. The gator trail was closed due to protected mommy gators, but as mentioned we did see gators..just on another trail.

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.
