Beach Hammock Trail FORT LAUDERDALE BEACH 0.3 MILES Tucked away at the southern corner of Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, the Beach Hammock Trail traverses a maritime hammock dense with sea grapes, myrsine, gumbo limbo, and stopper. Hurricane Wilma peeled the canopy off like a can opener, so sunlight streams in amid branches trimmed back by nature’s fury. Still, the hammock showcases native tropical trees. Feral iguanas hang around the impoundments and jump into the water when frightened.

Bear Creek Nature Trail WINTER SPRINGS 0.9 MILES A patch of wild in a sea of Winter Springs suburbia, Bear Creek provides nearly a mile’s worth of exploration atop sandy bluffs in a deeply shaded creekside hammock. Walking among the ancient cypress, oaks, and palms is a delightful escape from the backyard blues.

Bear Swamp Trail SALT SPRINGS 1.3 MILES Little known except to those who frequent this beautiful campground in the Salt Springs Recreation Area in the Ocala National Forest, the Bear Swamp Trail provides a glimpse into the ancient forest that undoubtedly crowded the shores of Salt Springs when botanist and explorer William Bartram visit- ed the “amazing crystal fountain” in 1774.

Betty Steflik Memorial Preserve FLAGLER BEACH 1.8 MILES Nestled in an unexpected corner of Flagler Beach, Betty Steflik Memorial Preserve protects more than 200 acres of mangrove marsh, mud flats, and coastal uplands right on the edge of this downtown beach community.

Big Lagoon Hiking Trails PENSACOLA 4.9 MILES Near Perdido Key, Big Lagoon State Park is best known for its (really big) lagoon, but the scenic trail sys- tem through the scrub is a delight for hardy hikers, involving much trekking through soft white sand.


RIVER STATE PARK LIVE OAK 12.5 MILES The Big Oak Trail is one of the most scenic hikes in North Florida and part of the statewide Florida Trail. Much of the hiking parallels the Suwannee and Withlacoochee Rivers.

Bill Frederick Park ORLANDO 2.4 MILES Long known as Turkey Lake Park, the City of Orlando’s largest park covers 178 acres of rolling hills on the west- ern shore of the lake. It’s an urban complex for outdoor recreation of all sorts, from boating on the lake to vast picnic grounds, a swimming pool, fish- ing piers, two 18-hole disc golf courses, a farm with barnyard animals, and camping - cabins, tent camping and a small RV campground.

Boca Ciega Millennium Park SEMINOLE 1.3 MILES With its highlight an observation tower providing a sweeping view of Boca Ciega Bay, Boca Ciega Millenium Park is a popular family-friendly get- away in Pinellas County, with a gentle boardwalk and footpath showcasing the succession of coastal habitats from mangroves to pine flatwoods through coastal strand and maritime forest. It’s always breezy here, and there is a dog park on site.


CAL STATE PARK TALLAHASSEE 0.8 MILES Lake Jackson Mounds is best known for being one of the largest ceremonial temple mound complexes in the Southeast, but it offers a cool, shady nature trail, too. There are six earthen temple mounds, the tallest 36 feet; a burial mound; and a village site from the early Fort Walton period, 1200-1500 A.D.

Cape Florida Nature Trail KEY BISCAYNE 2.0 MILES At the tip of Key Biscayne, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is one of the busiest parks in South Florida. Large crowds flock here for the excellent beaches, more scenic than those in neighboring Miami. The historic Cape Florida Lighthouse tow- ers over much of the activity, and a walk along the Biscayne Bay waterfront will provide a panorama of Stiltsville, a funky collection of above-the-water stilt homes in the bay shallows.

Camp Helen State Park PANAMA CITY BEACH Haunted by a sea monster sighted in one of the largest ancient coastal dune lakes on Florida’s coast, Camp Helen State Park offers seaside relaxation and historic interpretation.

Cofrin Nature Park GAINESVILLE 0.5 MILES A 30-acre tract within the city of Gainesville, this patch of preserve is the legacy of Mrs. Gladys Cofrin, an active environmentalist who had a horse farm and family homestead on this site. Thankfully, she passed it along to the people of Gainesville instead of selling out for yet another subdivision.
