This park is located a few miles south of Sarasota on US 41. Sarasota Gulf beaches are nearby, with all their amenities. The park preserves pinewoods scrubland, which is fast disappearing in Florida. A needed home to the threatened scrub jay and other animals and plants that inhabit this almost desertlike sandy system, it also contains areas of wet hammock and upland pine-palmetto habitat that are in close proximity to the camping areas. The trail system was developed on park service roads with the same kinds of problems and benefits found in other parks. The 2-mile park entrance road is paved and available for riding. The off-road unpaved trails are often open, sandy double tracks with some grass. There are a few canopied areas on the White Trail, but the rest is open to the sky. The trails are also used by service vehicles but no horses. Because of the sandy conditions during dry periods, you can expect some difficulties unless you have the strength to motor through the soft patches. The Friends of Oscar Scherer Park provides a map of all the trails. Trails: Paved park road, 2.0 miles, unpaved double track, 15.4 miles. Location: Sarasota County.
