Green Trail: Oscar Scherer State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Green Trail will take you through scrubby flatwoods and mesic pine flatwoods. It is considered the best biking trail in the park. At the start, the path crosses South Creek by bridge and leads to the campground. After passing several campsites, it follows an unpaved road that leads to a gate. Any chain is to block motorized vehicles.

Walk around it to enter Florida scrub jay habitat with little tree canopy. Just beyond the gate at bench 13 you can take an unpaved road of about a mile that rejoins the Green Trail. This side trail goes through pine flatwoods where gopher tortoises are common. The slash pines still show evidence of the turpentine industry of the early 1900s when the bark was exposed so sticky resin could be collected."
