Trail shared by Kristen McGlynn

A lovely nature trail that passes through one of the few remaining virgin slash pine forests in Florida.

Features Birding · Wildlife

Family Friendly A manageable distance with the chance to see osprey and their nests.

Description

This wide nature path is a quiet getaway from the busy beaches of Honeymoon Island. The trail is wide and mostly well-maintained although there are a few grassy sections where the footing is a bit uneven. Along the trail, you'll hike through one of the last virgin slash pine forests in Florida. Keep an eye open for the many osprey nest in the branches of the trees above you. In the springtime, you may spot chicks in the nests or the osprey returning with a fresh catch from the Gulf.
