Great walking trails and plenty of alligators to see. Very nice information center. Lake Hancock is huge and the wildlife plentiful. We love coming here.
This place is a real gem! Nice easy trail loop with many birds, a few alligators and even some wild hogs. Walking paths are fairly wide and smooth (large-wheeled strollers ok) and raised up above the swampy areas. Impressive array of birds (mid-Nov). Visitor center closed Mondays. No fee to enter preserve. As nice a park setting as you'll find... More
Enjoyed walking all the trails. Great quiet place to get away from it all. Didn't expect to get so many close gator encounters :)
I brought my 3 & 7-year-olds here (who had *never* hiked before), and they happily completed the 2-mile loop past the lake.

After hiking, we had a... More

I love this place it feels like I am i am away from everything. It is relaxing fun beautiful and best of all free :)

We visited Circle B while on vacation in Florida. We aren't Disney people and were looking for wildlife viewing opportunities as well economical fun! We saw butterflies, turkey, an owl, too many other types of birds to list, turtles, and a few alligators. Part of the trail was closed because of mating/nesting activity of the gators. And with it being... More
Circle B has become a place my family and I love to visit regularly. You never know what your going to see, but you can be sure that you will see some gators out on the lake. Also a Great place a picnic. My children thought it was so cool that we had breakfast there and then went for our... More
I came to the Circle B Bar Reserve for an event. I can not wait to go back on a less crowded day and just sit and listen to the noises of the wild. The place is gorgeous with some amazing trails. You get to walk through forest (and central Florida forest often equals jungle like), prairie and swamp. I... More
