Watch for alligators, river otters, bobcats, snakes, turtles and of course numerous birds. Look up and see Osprey and perhaps bald eagles. Herons and spoonbills are abundant.
During migration season you never know what you will see. On one autumn trip we saw common yellow-throats, painted buntings and northern Cardinals. Keep an eye out for the large webs of the Golden Silk Orb-Weaver, a huge spider found in Florida.
Restrooms are available at the nature Pavilion at the north entrance. The north end of the trail offers a children's playground.
Egan's Creek is a very nice and well looked after park, well worth a visit if you are in the wonderful Amelia Island area.
