Caloosahatchee Creeks Preserve is located on the north bank of the Caloosahatchee River. The preserve is seperated by the interstate 75 and includes two seperate access points, one on either side of the I 75.
The east side offers a 1.5-mile boardwalk through wetland, hammock, and pine flatwood for the leisurely walker, as well as 3 miles of additional primitive hiking trails for the more advanced hiker. Part of the latter trail goes right alongside the Caloosahatchee River and is well worth the sweat as visitors get to enjoy beautiful water views.
On the west side, visitors can access a kayak/canoe launch into Popash Creek, which eventually flows into the Caloosahatchee River. This side offers a short hiking trail and boardwalk that includes an observation deck. Parking Fees only apply on the west side. Dogs are permitted!!
