Love Circle B! It is a great walk and along the way keep your eyes out for gators, armadillos and hogs! They are in their natural habitat and make for a terrific outing!

Great place for hiking and observing Florida's nature including reptiles and birds. Be careful to respect their habitat as you hike through the Reserve. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes and above all take your camera. They have picnic tables located at the Discovery Centre.
