So we've been thinking about this one for a long time, and we finally made it out here. It's not too far from the W.P. Franklin Locks or Manatee Park, so swing out to check this place out if you're in that area.
It's one of the largest public parks with hiking trails in the area, with easily 5 miles of trails. The grounds are well-kept and there is a lot to see!

This is definitely some Florida nature!
