Estero Bay Preserve State Park

 About Estero Bay Preserve State Park

A trail at Estero Bay lined with trees and brush.


Robert Brooks

The over ten miles of trails at the Estero Bay Preserve State Park offer an opportunity to get far away from the asphalt and concrete of shopping centers and cities. We have trails for hiking and biking at the Broadway Scrub entrance to the preserve and hiking trails at our Winkler Point entrance. We are still experiencing the effect of the “summer” rains so parts of our trails are wet or muddy, this is especially prevalent at Winkler Point.  There are no facilities currently at either access point and it is advisable to bring water and perhaps a snack with you on your trip into the real Florida. The staff at Koreshan State Historic Site will be glad to provide you with information for Estero Bay Preserve State Park, Koreshan State Historic Site and Mound Key Archaeological State Park. Please contact the park on 1.239.992.0311.
