Stroll, walk, hike, jog, cycle, bird watch, fish, kayak, or sit and day dream. There are about four miles of trails that pass over canals and through mangroves overlooking tidal ponds of fish and wading birds. There is a tower where you can have views of the area and Tampa bay to the Skyway bridge. On the ground, standing on... More

If you like to walk, bike, kayak or simply experience nature, this park is it. You can expend a lot of energy on the beautiful trails which can be paved and easy or more of a challenge on the shell trails by the bay. You can do as much or little as you want and enjoy an hours walk to... More

This park is a real gem. A great place to bring the grandkids if you need to wear them out. The tower view of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge is wonderful. The trails are fun and there were lots of kayakers. The introductory exhibits and the welcome center were well done. Bring visitors!

Walking and climbing the tower, biking along the many paths, and kayaking on the water all have allowed the family to experience many types of adventures. Wildlife abound - spoonbills, coyotes, lots of little crabs, osprey.

We have walked there many times and are delighted by the beautiful trails and views of the water. They have kayaking but we have never tried it. You have to call Kayak Jack to order kayaks but this is no problem if you plan ahead. This is a delightful outdoor spot with restrooms in the parking lot. Allow several hours... More

We have walked the preserve many times and every time we have been lucky enough to see some different wildlife. You can take a short walk or a long one and it's great for running and cycling too

A great place to look at the natural environment, hike or ride your bike. Watch the fish jump in the ponds and maybe try your luck fishing.

The preserve is a perfect get away to see the beauty Florida has to offer. Egrets, herons, ibis, spoonbills are just some of the birds you will see in their natural habitat. There are walking and bike paths, canals for kayaking and an observation tower.
