Take a guided hike to the mysterious Deep Hole at Lower Myakka Lake in the park’s wilderness preserve. The area is usually one of the best places in the park to view eagles, wading birds like roseate spoonbills and sandhill cranes, ducks, shorebirds, and alligators. This is a 5-mile hike through moderately rough terrain, on sandy soils and along the lakeshore.
