CREW Marsh Hiking Trails (Gate 1) Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"The CREW Marsh Hiking Trails are a well-kept secret so enjoy the peace and solitude. This is a nice sandy trail to hike while viewing birds and other wildlife, as well as native flowering plants. There is a possibility to see Florida panthers, Florida black bears, bobcats, feral hogs, wild turkeys, and other interesting fauna. Wildflowers abound.
For wildflower enthusiasts the CREW Marsh represents the
southern edge of the natural range of many species of native wildflowers due to the sandy habitat that is not found south of this region. Here you can find such species as the endemic Florida scrub roseling (Callisia ornata), coastal plain honeycombhead (Balduina angustifolia), and pine barren frostweed (Crocanthemum corymbosum)."
