“A lovely trail through pastures and wetlands, mostly shaded, with benches and tables along the trail”— Alexandra Sulecki
The Red Trail runs through upland mixed hardwood and pine forests, skirting depressional wetlands. There is an active cattle lease on the property, and cattle often access the trails leaving surprises for runners - watch where you step! The cow "surprises" along the trail provide opportunities to see dung beetles in action. Dung beetles are currently the only known insect to navigate and orient themselves using the Milky Way!
Caracara Prairie Preserve is part of the CREW Wildlife Environmental Area where public hunting is permitted and regulated through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. Pay attention to signs that will alert you to "hunting in progress."
