Includes: East Loop, Kitching Creek Trail. This 11,500-acre park is named for Jonathan Dickinson, who in 1696 was shipwrecked about 5 miles from here. Dickinson was probably one of the first explorers to sample palmetto berries, a staple of the local Jaegas Indian diet. He reported: “They taste like rotten cheese steeped in tobacco juice.” Obviously, an acquired taste. Another local historical character of note was “The Wild Man of the Loxahatchee,” a trapper by name of Nelson, who died in 1968. He had built a popular wildlife zoo near his home that the state took over after his death. It’s now the Trapper Nelson Interpretive, Site upriver from the state park. Visitors can reach Trapper Nelson’s zoo by taking the 30-passenger “Loxahatchee Queen” from the park. The trail system here features a series of loop trails. Despite nearby development, more than 500 animal species (including bald eagles, scrub jays, gopher tortoises) live within the park. About 20 percent of the park is covered in coastal sand pine scrub, a habitat so rare it is designated “globally imperiled.”
