I wouldn't drive more than a mile or so do this road. It's really just more of the same. This road is a good place to see wildlife. It's really not very far from Marco. It's located right off Highway #41.

Great great place to see birds. Most tourists do not venture more than a few hundred feet up this road from Highway 41--thankfully. So, fairly quiet. In the morning lots of birds fishing. In the afternoon they are more fed and are seen sitting on...More
