A great place for a quick walk. The place has a 1 mile trail which is mostly covered with trees to keep out the sunshine. Bring water to drink and there is restrooms in the interpreter center.

Drive on small old roads and enjoy what life was like in natural Florida. There are some ruins along the way on parts of the roads.
