This short and very easy trail gives the visitor immediate knowledge of the area's plant life.

The Plum Orchard Pond Trail begins just north of the visitor center offering an up close look at the area's wetland. Interpretive signs identify the indigenous plant life. Look closely for alligators lingering slightly sublevel. Also, look to the water's edge for the statuesque wading birds. In the dry season, this trail accommodates wheelchairs.

Directions: From Tallahassee, FL, Travel U.S. High 363 south to State Route 267. Turn left and travel about 3.5 miles to U.S. Highway 98. Turn left again to County Road 59. Look for trail signs just before the Visitor Center. Signage is excellent. Parking is ample.
