Trail shared by Paul Merklin

This doubletrack through forested wetlands is good for bird and other wildlife viewing.

Description

The Sabal Point Sanctuary Trail starts from the end of Wilderness Road in the Sabal Point housing development. There is a small parking area with room for several cars, with additional parking available on the nearby streets. The trail itself starts on the far side of a gate, and a signboard is located at the trailhead with a map of the area.

The trail is well-packed doubletrack with few obstacles. The land is flat, so elevation changes are minimal. The trail runs through the forested wetlands of the area and is a conservation area for birds and other wildlife. For the most part, the trail runs straight and there are no side-trails or turnings, so it is very easy to follow. There is a small pond nearly a mile from the trailhead with a bench for seating. After about 1.75 miles, the trail ends at another gate, although this one leads to private property and has "No Trespassing" signs posted.
