Found on the northeast side of the Turkey Creek Trail, this short trail (< .2 miles) leads you through a mixed pine forest to the edge of a wetland Savannah. Here you will find one of the four species of carnivorous plants--the pitcher plant.

There are eight trails in the Preserve totaling more than 45 miles. The longest is 18 miles while the shortest is less than one quarter mile. A few of our trails are fully accessible. Please use caution during the summer months when temperatures and humidity readings are higher than normal. Hike only during the early morning or late afternoon hours.
