Visitors to the Palm Hammock Trail will see a variety of vegetation growing in the wetlands. This trail is very easy and makes for a nice extension after touring the nearby visitor center. As with most of the refuge, you will want to carry binoculars for a closer inspection of the variety of resident and migratory birds. This trail is almost always soggy. Matter of fact, a sign at the trailhead indicates wet or dry conditions. Old shoes are recommended; however, boardwalks do span the lowest areas. Visitors new to the region will immediately notice the cabbage palm. Note: This trail tends to harbor a large number of mosquitoes and other obnoxious flying insects.
Directions: From Titusville, FL, Take State Route 402 east, traveling just beyond the visitor center. Trailheads are well marked.
Elevation: 5 - 10 feet
