Your journey begins at a very nice nature center. Here you can learn as much as you want about south Florida in elaborate displays. We skipped all that and headed out to the incredible raised walkways that they built through the mangrove swamp. On this walk, trees and plants are marked. The sunlight filters through the palms, and dances on the flora below. Bring your camera and bet ready to click that shutter. Halfway through the walk you climb a tower to the top of the canopy. What an amazing sight. Everyone should see the canopy from a treetop view. At the end of the walk, you will come to some giant saltwater tanks. In these tanks are all kinds of fish and turtles. They nurse sick critters back to health and them let them go in the wild -- very interesting. Rangers will tell you as much as you are willing to listen to about the trials of these handicap critters. We saw one of the most amazing fish in one of these tanks. They call them sea hares and they look like something in a Chinese buffet, but they have eyes and swim -- amazing.
We spent about two hours at this fine park/hiking trail. It’s located on A1A between the Intracoastal Canal and the ocean in Boca Raton.
