Typical view [?]
NOTE: Hard to out do this one
NOTE: Sandy and at entrance more than grassy.
NOTE: The nature is fine but hard to navigate and no shade
NOTE: The wooded part is. The sandy part is okay
LOCATION: Accuracy: Read me
There is interesting scrub habitat but finding a way into it is a challenge because it seems that the trails have been abandoned a long time ago. This land connects to Southfork but I don't think there are actually trails connecting them.
Towhees, turkeys, possibly Florida Scrub Jays.
Armadillo, gopher tortoise, and probably coyote. Also a big patch of passionflower vines.
There's a child's playground in front but the rest seem abandoned. I've found trail markers behind years of tree and weed growth. There are plenty of spent bullet casings around - does that count as an amenity?
It should show up in the GPS on Taylor Grade Road.
Reminder: This place still exists ... I think somehow it's been forgotten. The scrub trails are okay but the wooded entrance area has been reclaimed by forest.
It's mostly trudging through sandy trails and you probably wouldn't want to but you could spend an afternoon wandering around. I think it took me three hours to do the big loop. I do NOT suggest going here in summer because there is no shade.
First time I went here I cursed a lot. Trails were not where they were supposed to be. I went back a couple times and the scrub area is interesting but it's punishing. Trudging through sandy jeep trails with zero shade and whacking through weeds to follow trail signs at the entrance is not so fun. If you know that going in it can be nice.
