This expansive 187-acre property is located at the intersection of 8th Street/3rd Circle and Indian River Boulevard (east side of Indian River Blvd). It boasts an ecologically diverse three- mile trail system for hiking, jogging or bicycling. The trailhead parking area lies under a broad canopy of live oaks draped with Spanish moss. The trail winds its way through the oak hammock and a forest of cabbage palms before arriving at the mangroves. A boardwalk offers a shaded glimpse into a mangrove forest on the way to a Lagoon overlook. This out-and-back hike is one mile. For those seeking more exercise, try the long loop trail that offers 2.5-3 miles of walking or biking. There is also a short Mini-Adventure trail, which offers a more wilderness experience along a single-lane trail through the shaded oak hammock.
Motorized vehicles are NOT allowed. Dogs are allowed as long as they are "scooped" and kept on leash. This trail is an example of a public/private cooperative between the Land Trust, Indian River County, and the Florida Inland Navigation District. Note, though the trails remain open year round, during the rainy season portions of the Main and Mini Adventure trail may become flooded. Please use caution during wet conditions.
