This inauspicious 80-acre tract harbors a primitive loop trail that explores a preserved mosaic of forestland and includes a platform view of the Alafia River and a salt marsh. The preserve is also a haven for native species, as invasive and exotic plants are kept under control. The preserve is more important than just a hiking destination; it actually protects a plant community known as oak scrub, which is the most endangered natural community in Florida. The main area of oak scrub is in the southeastern corner of the tract, where the hike begins. It’s no surprise that oak scrub would be a rare community in this time, as it is easily developed. But thanks to forward thinking by Hillsborough County, you can walk a very primitive trail through the area, which is surrounded on three sides by homes and businesses, with the fourth side bordering the Alafia River.
