We usually cycle around the pond on the roads, but it looked so nice, I decided to walk the trail. It is a nice easy walk, probably about one mile total. There is lots of wildlife, eagles, alligators etc. so walk and watch.

Nice place to take a walk and enjoy the scenery. We found a few geocaches here too which made it a plus.
