Cedar Key Scrub Nature Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Cedar Key Scrub Nature Trail on the east side of Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve is a fascinating walk through an endangered Florida scrub forest. The trail is characterized by a few wetlands and dwarf oak trees and shrubs, the perfect habitat for the rare Florida scrub-jay, the state’s only endemic bird, as well as pileated woodpeckers and the endangered eastern indigo snake and gopher tortoise.

The Cedar Key Scrub Nature Trail is located on the east side of Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve, a 5,028-acre tract that sports a diverse ecosystem ranging from salt marsh to pine flatwoods to sand pine scrub as it slopes down to the Gulf of Mexico. In all there is a total of 12 miles of multiuse trail within the reserve, which is split nearly down the middle by CR 37. There are 8 miles of trail on the west side and 4 miles on the east side."
