Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not much of a trail. Very short walk. Not worth the visit, time and energy for a five minute nature walk trail. What a waste.

Wear walking shoes. Not very long but a nice little trail. Quiet. Could imagine what it might have been like back in the day!

Nice walking trail with plants and trees identified and explained. Nice place to go for learning about vegetation. Views of mangrove swamps and open water too.

A short nature trail walk. Well maintained. Even in winter when plants are dormant, small lizards and birds can be seen sunning themselves.

My son took our pup on the 2 mile round trip trail. Both absolutely loved it,especially meeting locals out getting their daily exercise. Everyone was so very friendly. Wish bigger cities had the attitude of Cedar Key!

We hiked to the end of the trail to take sunset photos. It’s overgrown and not well maintained. We only spent 3-4 minutes at the end as we were attacked by clouds of NoSeeUms despite our bug spray. When we told a local about it he said it’s known for the bugs.

Not a trail we will try again.

.6 mile hike down a sandy nature trail seeing all kinds of flora and fauna native to FL. They have it labeled too. Parking is very limited (like 3 parking spots). The canopy of foliage was so pretty leading you down to the railroad trestle. It is worth stopping either when going into town and or leaving. Free!

This trail was pleasant. The history is fascinating. It is hard to believe that from 1861-1932, this was the site of actively traveled train tracks. Now, it offers a sweet, shaded sanctuary.

Our experience in February, was that it was highly maintained (I mention this because I read other reviews that express poor trail maintenance). If one is interested in the flora, they will be pleased; the signs along the way were informative. Benches are placed throughout if needed. It was surprising that during our hal hour on the trail, we passed five others. It is nice to know that others are enjoying this trail, too!

If you are expecting something special or outstanding, well don't do this! We walked it from downtown, and it is a moderate walk. Find it on the map so you know what street to turn down and look to the right when you enter the street. Not very well marked from the road.

Lots of signs on the plants and trees to help identify them. The trestle is pretty much wooden pilings. We saw a fisherman while we were there, but nothing else.

The sign as you enter has a lot of information about this site.

It is a shaded, nice walk!

There is a small parking lot right after you make the turn onto Grove Street. Keep an eye out, or you'll miss it. We did, but it was easy to backtrack. The trail is right next to this small parking lot.

The trail itself is quite short, although there are benches along the way. It was fun to see remnants of the railroad.

You'll see interesting wildlife, and perhaps a passing boat or two.
