Oak Hammock Trail is an easy 1-mile interpretive hike. It is a good follow-up after touring the nearby visitor center.

This trail shares a trailhead with the Palm Hammock Trail. It is shorter in length and not as low-lying. The Oak Hammock Trail is one of those trails good for a leisurely stroll while observing the various types of semitropical and subtropical plant life. At the start of the trail, a glorious bed of green fern welcomes the hiker. Like all hikes within the refuge, binoculars and camera can be a welcome accompaniment. Note: A profusion of mosquitoes can make this trail very unpleasant during hot muggy summer days.

Directions: From Titusville, FL, Take State Route 402 east, traveling just beyond the visitor center. Trailheads are well marked.

Elevation: 5 - 10 feet
