“A nine-mile loop in a beautiful wildlife haven at St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park.”— Ryan Spr
En route, you'll be immersed in a number of habitats that are home to many native plants and animals, including more than 74 protected species.
St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park is responsible for conserving the grassy forests of longleaf pine that used to be found across the state. This loop heads through pine flatwoods, which create a backdrop for other biological communities (cypress domes, scrubby flatwoods, scrub, sandhills and a beautiful strand swamp).
Wildlife found in this area of the park includes Florida scrub jays, red-cockaded woodpeckers, Bachman’s sparrows, Eastern indigo snakes, bald eagles and gopher tortoises.
