A Special Place
Along the 28 miles of multi-use paved trails, you'll discover nine distinct ecosystems, including longleaf sand ridges, coastal dunes, live oak maritime forests, pine flatwoods, freshwater marshes, and coastal hardwood swamps. Grab a bike and meander down lanes lined with towering pines, scrub oak, palmetto, and thick, green deer moss. You'll cruise past shimmering freshwater lakes, coastal swamps, and wetlands where cattails sway in the breeze.
Waiting for their next meal (usually an unsuspecting fly), beautiful, white-topped pitcher plants with long, conical stems can be seen near the marshes. Florida rosemary bushes grace almost every trail. While not used for cooking, the plant still has that familiar rosemary fragrance. Not sure what you're seeing? The trails have been outfitted with interpretive signs to help you identify plants and wildlife.
While on the trails, be on the lookout for local wildlife, as you may spot whitetail deer, bobcats, coyotes, and even alligators. Keep your eyes peeled above for osprey, bald eagles, heron, and dozens of other bird species.
