overview

Description:

Hiking is pleasant in the fall, winter, and spring. The 4.7-mile loop trail passes through oak scrub, pine flatwoods, seasonal wetlands and cutthroat grass seeps in the central portion of the area. Florida scrub-jay and gopher tortoise are common in the oak scrub. Seasonal wetlands host ibis, egrets, herons, wood storks and Florida sandhill cranes. Look for deer, turkey, and fox squirrels in the pine flatwoods. Hikers may leave the loop trail and follow service roads to the western side of the area to reach the mature pine flatwoods where they might see red-cockaded woodpeckers. Cavity trees are marked and are easy to spot.
