One of the best places to see wildlife is on this self-guided, 7-mile drive through salt and freshwater marshes. A trail brochure detailing 12 stops and the habitats and wildlife found there is available at the entry point.

In season you'll see plenty of waterfowl, wading birds and raptors, including luridly colored roseate spoonbills and, if you're lucky, the endangered Florida scrub jay. Alligators, otters, bobcats and various species of reptile may also be visible in the early morning and at sunset. The drive takes approximately 40 minutes.
