Overview

This short loop isn't very difficult, but many runners will still find it worthy of visiting. The area is scenic, and if you're looking for a place to escape the city, this can be a good option.
Hours: Sunrise to sunset, 365 days a year. No admission fee.
Refrain from disturbing wildlife and vegetation. Glass containers prohibited. Hunting prohibited. Camping/bathing prohibited, and profanity prohibited.

Runner Notes

If it’s been raining or you go during the rainy season, be mindful of water-/mud-covered roads and always wear bug spray and a hat to combat the risk of insect bites.

Description

The Sal Taylor Creek Preserve is 406 acres of primarily pine plantation, with areas of isolated wetlands and beautiful bottom lands around Sal Taylor Creek. There are approximately 4 miles of trails within the park, some being fairly wide former forest roads and other spur trails being narrower walking paths.

The Main Trail runs about 2 miles, one way, from the trailhead to the bottom lands of Sal Taylor Creek. If you're looking for a shorter journey, this loop using the North Spur Trail is a great option. Short and sweet, you get an idea of the longer trail, all on a shorter journey.

Flora & Fauna

Gopher Tortoise and Nine Banded Armadillo are the only possible sightings of wildlife on this trail.
