A satellite campus of the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, it encompasses a 100-acre parcel of land that showcases a different, freshwater side of Sanibel Island. The Bailey Tract provides an easy hike or bike through interior habitats and past freshwater ponds. You may see ducks, alligators, river otters, marsh rabbits, ospreys, and moorhens.
Five easy boardwalk and shell trails range in length from about a quarter-mile to a little over 1 mile.
