    Great Hiking Trails

    THe state park allowes dogs on their trails (leashed 6ft). The entrance fee per car is $8. You can also rent kayaks (but in my opinion those are a bit expensive). Dogs are not allowed on the beach unfortunately. The Dog beach is not far and leashed dogs are allowed on Fort Myers beaches (parking fees)

    I take my dog here every weekend!

    I take my dog on these trails every weekend and he loves it! Lots of new smells every week and very difficult to get turned around on the trail and plenty or rest benches throughout the trail. Great place to stretch your legs and your dogs legs out!

    Good walk

    Nice little walk through the park. It's shaded enough to keep cool during the hot hours.

    Beautiful grassy trails along the water.

    If you're going in the late Spring - early Fall, get to the park early. The first obvious reason is the heat - the trail is mostly open with patches of shade. There were covered benches along the trail where you could stop and have some water and let the dog(s) rest. Bring water - we have two dobes and one of them wore a backpack full of water. The second reason to get there early is because there is only one causeway to the beach and as it gets later traffic gets backed up. There were other activities that we didn't do, but would have liked to have done like kayaking.
