This 154+ acre preserve was purchased through the county’s Environmentally Sensitive Lands Protection Program.
  • The marked trail is approximately one-mile long.
  • The hiking trails are unpaved but accessible for most visitors.
  • Be prepared for Florida’s often challenging outdoor conditions, by bringing water, sun block, insect repellant, a rain jacket and sturdy shoes.
  • Some trails may flood after heavy rainfall.
  • The preserve has limited parking and is accessible by crossing a 330-foot boardwalk bordering a wetland.
