There are two entrances to this park. We prefer the one off of Bruce B. Downs Blvd. Parking costs $2 but it lasts the entire day and there are clean restrooms and the ranger lives right there in case of emergencies. There is a two mile lead in to the seven mile loop road. From the other entrance it is only a mile but I haven't found that entrance to be as well maintained. We usually walk the two mile spur and back for a healthy four-mile hike. At other times we bike the entire loop for an 11-mile work out. The path is all concrete though there are some spur trails off of the main loop that are not. Though basic the concreted areas are free of potholes so are safe. It is a shared trail so use good manners ... bikers say "passing on your left" and walkers don't hog the entire width to give faster users room to pass safely.

Florida has many beautiful and well maintained parks. This particular park has a beautiful 7seven mile bike trail. Water stations are well stocked. Clean, pretty, worth the trip.
