May 11 @ 9:30 am 11:30 am


Join us for a 2.5 mile hike through pine flatwoods, oak hammocks, popash slough and along the edge of a 5,000 acre sawgrass marsh at the CREW Marsh Trails.

We will visit an observation deck and tower with wide views of the Corkscrew Marsh, as well as hiking trails that allow native wildflowers to be viewed up close. There are many air plants growing in the area, and we may even see some ground orchids if we’re lucky!

The CREW Marsh Trails are also part of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. Woodpeckers, flycatchers, warblers, hawks and owls are frequently spotted along with swallow tailed kites in the spring.

Most of the trails are wide and flat with some winding, single-track trails with roots present in the popash slough. Trails may be muddy, especially if it has rained recently.

Please bring plenty of water, sunscreen, hats and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting dirty. There are no trash cans so if you bring snacks, be sure to bring trash bags of your own.

Hike begins at 9:30am and will conclude around 11:30am, followed by an optional picnic lunch at Suzanne’s Pavilion. Bring your own lunch and drinks if you’d like to join us!

Difficulty: Easy – Moderate
