A field with birds that quickly descends into deep forest along the Alafia river. Very enclosed and fun trail. You get to the interesting parts quickly if you want a quick hike.
Typical forest birds - cardinals, titmice, red shouldered hawk. Not a huge birding spot but there are birds - I'd say the appeal is more the hike.
Should be deer etc but saw no sign.
Just a parking area. Not too far from gas stations or the major Alderman's Ford Park (not preserve) though you have to pay to get in there.
There's a clear parking area and sign - address should get you there.
You could see interesting things in 30 minutes or spend a few hours here.
You arrive and it seems like you've driven into a forested area in a rural place and surprise - a park. When facing the trailhead sign you can go right, backwards, or back and to the left. To the right gets to the river pretty quickly. The other directions I didn't explore thoroughly but it's sort of scrub / field with some trees. Lots of blackberries growing if you're there in the right season. And seemed to have good amount of birds but nothing exotic - just typical forest birds (cardials, titmice, red shouldered hawk, etc).
