Headwaters of the Loxahatchee Wild and Scenic River
Nine native Florida ecosystems are preserved at this 12,841-acre site: mesic flatwoods, wet flatwoods, mesic hammock, hydric hammock, wet prairie, depression marsh, slough marsh, strand swamp, and dome swamp. During the summer and fall this site gets very wet for hiking so bring your mud boots or stay on the mulituse trails - Bluegill and Pântano - to stay high and dry along the perimeter of the site.
