This hilly interpretive trail in the Jennings State Forest takes you through numerous plant communities and to informative stops that explain the importance of fire and water for Florida’s forests. Enjoy a wildlife blind and an overlook above Wheeler Branch, a blackwater stream, and perhaps see some insect-eating pitcher plants. County, near the town of Middleburg. Centered on North Fork Black Creek, the forest provides recreational opportunities for visitors and a place for wildlife to call home.
