Small park but feels like you're deep in the woods. Traces a slow river in thick forest of cabbage palms, scrub, and live oaks. Fairly well covered in summer from the sun. It's not much more than a mile so I wouldn't drive far just for this but I would look forward to making this a second stop. Well designed park - very enjoyable.
Besides the random forest birds (saw a wren for example) we saw a good number of limpkin plus their pals egrets/herons. I enjoyed this more for it being a nice hike than a birding hotspot but the birding was still good.
Surprisingly a lot. We saw raccoon, gopher tortoise, and they say there are deer and wild turkey. So keep your eyes open.
Bathrooms, gorgeous boardwalk, fishing area, kayak launch, nice playground with little lending library - that was pretty charming. Nice park.
Great job - you can tell somebody loves this place.
I'd give it at least an hour but it's a short trail so unlikely to take more than 2 even if you're stopping to get lots of photos.
It's not a big park - 80 acres and when we drove there it seemed like it was just going to be another suburban "meh". But the 1-1.5 mile trail actually feels like wilderness and it's twists and turns manage to change things up to keep you interested surprisingly well. On a map this place (and a lot of suburban sprawl) it is kind of between two wildernesses - Starkey and Werner Boyce. Which usually bodes well for diversity of species.
