We enjoyed walking the loop and venturing out on the wooden paths. Saw a hawk, crane, fish, spiders, large bugs, nothing too crazy. Was a nice way to spend an hour and a half!

This is a nice little (short) trail, and we did see some crabs. I'm very surprised that it's rated as the #2 activity, however. If you are headed to Coquina Beach, it's certainly worth a stop, but I wouldn't go out of my way to...More

We visit this every time that we are on AMI. It is a great little trail system for nature lovers or anyone just looking for something a little different during a beach vacation.

Yes, I am aware it is Florida and I'm sure it would have been much more enjoyable on a cooler, less humid day. I have experienced those type of days in Florida in the fall or winter. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.
