The preserve has more than eight-miles of trails, including the 3.3-mile outer loop trail. The trails are unpaved but accessible for most visitors. Be prepared for Florida’s often extreme outdoor experiences by bringing water, sun block, a rain jacket and sturdy shoes. All trail intersections are marked with numbered trail markers. Some trails may flood after heavy rainfall and several trails may be wet year-round at intersections with creeks and ditches. The preserve has limited parking and is accessible via a walk-thru gate.
