DescriptionPerfect for wild nature lovers, adventurous runners, hikers and mountain bike riders. Spring Hammock Preserve is appx. 1,500 acres, including Soldier's Creek Park, Big Tree Park and a portion of the Cross Seminole Trail and Florida National Scenic Trail. A beautiful and lush hydric hammock, it's also a flood plain so majority of the park and trails are in completely natural state, thick with vegetation and wildlife. It is possible to walk, run or hike about 2 to 3 miles in the hammock but also possible to get lost on the winding trails. In rainy season it's wet silt and mud for long stretches. Be aware, the preserve is part of a Florida conservation area and wildlife is abundant, including alligators. Right outside the preserve entrance is the paved Cross Seminole Trail taking you over to Soldier?s Creek Park, crossing over a bridgeway and then to Big Tree Park. All parks have parking and restrooms. Open sunrise to sunset. The park gates close at dusk. More info on the preserve and parks: http://floridahikes.com/spring-hammock-preserve
