If you are looking for a short quarter mile walk near the Education Center, the Glass Lizard Trail is your hike of choice! A journey through a Pine Flatwoods habitat loops around to the marsh edge of what can be commonly referred to as an "ecotone" or place where two ecosystems meet. For a longer hike, take a look at the Gopher Tortoise Trail that spans roughly one mile through Flatwood terrain. Both trails can be accompanied by self-guided hiking booklets that can be borrowed from the Education Center and take you along various stops. The end of the trail leads you to our equestrian parking lot where equine enthusiasts can bring their horses to trail ride through the park. Water and a trailer turn-around area are available. For the start to our major trail system see the “North End Nature Trails” section on the website. Please phone the Education Center (772-398-2779) Thursday-Monday to obtain the gate code.
