Hours and entrance fees Florida state parks are open between 8 a.m. and sundown every day of the year (including holidays). The park assesses a per vehicle daily or yearly entrance fee, $8 per day in 2012. $2 for Pedestrian or biker. $4.00 for one person in vehicle. The nature trails will give you ample opportunities to run into the inhabitants of the island. While Osprey are the norm, keep an eye out for the gopher tortoise crossing your path, the armadillo foraging for food, or the raccoon scurrying off into the woods. Please remember the essentials when exploring the outdoors - sun protection, hydration, and bug spray.
Mosquitos are quite prevalent in the picnic areas and trails away from the beach, and can quickly inflict dozens of bites on uncovered, unprotected skin
Trail length: 3 miles

Nice walk through wooded area. saw ospreys, egrets, a heron up where the trail gets to the end of the island. Also saw many hermit crabs where there was ponding on or along the trail. Make sure to have insect repellent with you.

This was a surprise hike for me. The interpretive center was very icely built with a ton of information. The hike offered on this barrier island was interesting. On the 3 miles of nature trails deep in the pines you mandatory need repellant. The nest and birds were abundant. I also encountered 5 different turtles along the way. I did venture the rest of the island to see what else was available and the trails along the shoreline were interesting and brought you through some very white rocky mangrove areas. The shorelines were gorgeous the waters were pristine and emerald in color
