This park is at the southern entrance to Longboat Key and a bit tricky to find. It's an easy walk through a subtropical area at the shore of the bay. Two lagoons are interesting to see. Many birds that the grandchildren enjoyed. There is a fishing pier at the end of the trail. Flat, easy walk with ample areas to... 更多
Perhaps it's because of the recent storm but the trail has tons of trash all along the nature trail. It distracts from the natural beauty. There were very few water birds that we noticed today. It's a nice nature trail that's easy to walk once you find it. Signage is not where tourists might find it traveling in either direction.
We were challenged to find the place, though eventually did. Signage is not very prominent, or visible. It's a rather short trail, with a few picnic tables and benches, along the way. The path was about 1.25 miles, round trip. We saw a few birds, but not many, at all. We were disappointed to see quite a bit of litter... 更多
Small well maintained nature preserve. Park across the highway just after you cross the bridge on to Longboat key. Quiet, peaceful walk. Good views of a couple of tidal basins and a nice view across the bay to see Sarasota. Allow about one hour for an easy walk
I was hoping for a larger escape area. This location abuts the high traffic area along Gulf of Mexico drive, with little room for turning around, let alone serenity.
We take this walk at least once each time we visit Long Boat Key. It's a fairly short trail along the bay wth a few decks out over the water where we've often seen dolphins. The first part of the trail is paved, but the majority is not. It is very well groomed though. Depending on what time of the... 更多
I walk through this park on a regular basis as part of my regular workout. The trail is along the edge of Sarasota Bay and has a couple of platforms for viewing. The first of these is over a saltwater lagoon where you can frequently see Blue Herons and Egrets. At the end of the walk there is a platform... 更多
This is a short trail very closely along Sarasota Bay wth nice views. A couple of boardwalk decks are within 2 tidal lagoons, one natural and one artificial. The final deck onto the bay was very close to an active osprey nest and a couple of dolphins passed about 20 feet from us. It's located very conveniently at the foot... 更多
We only found 2 trails really. They are short so not really a long hike. We didn't see many birds but you can really see a lot of the birds by the parking area. Park before bridge and walk under to get to trails. Easy makes a short run.
Do take a "Quick" hike to this sweet little nature preserve. You can park at the bridge where you enter Longboat Key and enjoy the trails which allow views of all the exotic birds and fish in the area.
