Corkscrew Sanctuary Boardwalk Professional Reviews and Guides
"Walk along an elevated boardwalk and view an abundance of birdlife, along with other wildlife, in their natural habitat.This elevated boardwalk offers extraordinary scenic views of what wild Florida looked like before much of it was lost to development, agriculture, and theme parks. The trail begins directly outside of the Blair Audubon Center with an elevated boardwalk that leads visitors through pine flatwoods, cypress and mixed-hardwood swamp, wet prairies, and sloughs that make up the 13,000-acre preserve. The entire boardwalk is more than 2 miles in length, and there are covered pavilions and sitting areas along the way to either relax in or escape a rainstorm. There is a 1-mile loop that allows for a shorter excursion."
