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.
This nature preserve would be better if the trails and the area in general were better taken care of. Not a good impression when you are looking at birds and there is trash on the beach and debris all over trails.The walkways were filthy and the trails were overgrown and not cleared in some areas. Go but be prepared to... 更多
It's a hidden entrance. Park and go under the bridge and the path is about 100 yards on the right. Great place to watch birds. About 1 mile total and nice late afternoon visit.
I have been going to Long Boat Keys for several years, and never stopped at this park. This year I stopped and found a great little place to walk. It gave me a great view of land, lagoon, and the bay. There are several places to have a picnic. If you are a fisherman there are several places to access... 更多
