Typical view [?]
NOTE: Nice place but I wouldn't expect to see birds necesarily
NOTE: Not much room for them with the water and highway
NOTE: Cypress roots on short trail
LOCATION: Accuracy: Read me
It's a very short trail and a not terribly long boardwalk through cypress swamp/forest along a bit of an offshoot of the hillsborough river.
You might see water birds though I wouldn't expect a lot. I've seen swallow tailed kites on the river but that is probably a fluke.
Aligators certainly possible but not plentiful. I wouldn't expect much else - there's not much land between river and highway.
I don't recall if there was a bathroom here. Kayak launch and rentals.
Take Fowler Ave exit from I75 and go east.
Definitely less than half an hour.
Pull in and on you see the boat/kayak launch to the left of the kayak rental place. Left of that is a very short trail that is pretty that goes along the launch canal area. On the right side is the boardwalk that meanders a bit through cypress tress mostly over water. It reaches what looks like the Hillsborough River, but I think it's just a little offshoot of it, and a nice view. I've seen swallow tailed kites dipping down around here.
