“A primitive trail though the north edge of the Turkey Creek Sanctuary.”
— Ryan Spr
Birding · Wildlife
Trail open from 7 a.m. to sunset daily.
Plenty of roots cross the trail, so watch your footing!
This primitive nature trail winds through the north side of the 130-acre sanctuary. The trail passes through hydric and mesic hammocks and sand pine scrub communities. Unfortunately, the sound of traffic makes it difficult to escape through this preserve of old Florida, but the trail is still a nice refuge from the ever-encroaching expansion.
