Long Branch/Pine Lilly Preserve
Hikers and equestrian users will enjoy the natural beauty of these 2 adjacent properties which consists of 7 different natural communities. Pine Lily Preserve has been designated as a Great Florida Birding Trail. Long Branch, a tributary of the Econlockhatchee River, meanders through both sites. The site offers peace and serenity as well as a glimpse of old Florida. The trails are well marked/blazed for your convenience and safety and allow you to further your trail experience with connections onto Hal Scott Preserve.
Wildlife is plentiful if you are quiet and looking for it. If not, you may still be pleasantly surprised by what pops up unexpectedly and crosses your path like a gopher tortoise, woodpeckers, turkey, or deer. Hawks and various songbirds can also be heard throughout the site while you are hiking. The beautiful Pine Lily, for which the preserve is named for, can be seen blooming during the late summer and fall.
