This is a beautiful nature preserve. However. It was hot with very little shade. Most of the landscape is lowland we went to the tower and enjoyed the view from the top. The water below is full of jumping fish. We would love to bike this area or kayak. It just seemed hot and tedious to walk
A great outdoor activity. Walk to Tampa Bay, see the Skyway. Climb the look out tower, see Anna Maria Island. Paddle the waterways. See the Eagles. And the crabs.....

This is a beautiful preserve with a scenic bike trail, and fishing spots, along with some little outlets to sit on the water and just enjoy the scenery. It isn't crowded, yet, it isn't isolated either. Beautiful area!
Good place for waterfowl viewing, photoing. Also, a good kayaking destination (bring your own kayak) - easy launching. I like to ride my bike around the park on the way out to Anna Marie Island. Most of the trails are hard surface.
