Comprised mainly of pine flatwoods, cypress domes and open pasture land, this piece of natural Florida wilderness is home to many animal species including the American bald eagle, sherman's fox squirrel, gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, wild turkey and bobcat. The park offers numerous recreational opportunities including 12 miles of hiking trails, horseback riding (with your own horse), biking, picnicking and nature study. Two picnic areas with a total of four pavilions, two restrooms and a fishing/observation dock are available. Three of the pavilions are available for rental. Freshwater Fishing is also a popular activity. Visitors can fish either from the bank or a small boat such as a canoe, kayak or Jon boat. Gas powered motors are not permitted however electric trolling motors are. For overnight enthusiasts, both a primitive backpack camp and a primitive youth camp are available.
Trail length: 10 miles

Most of this 20 feet wide trail meanders through mature pine flatwoods and saw palmettos. Get a trail map from the kiosk by the dock. With it you can follow the numbered posts that indicate location and correspond with spur trails. Multiple spur trails make loops with the Orange Trail, so depending on how far you want to hike, it's a shorter or longer distance loop .
