The property was acquired for protection of the area's groundwater recharge, as well as important surface water features and wetland habitats. The preserve's wetlands play a role in both the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes and the Withlacoochee River systems, part of the Floridan aquifer's recharge/discharge system. Additionally, the site provides habitat to wildlife, including a small population of threatened Florida scrub-jays.
Trail length: 30 miles

Will need some bug spray in the summer around the river. Nice hiking & most is shaded. This is also used for hunting so make sure it isn't hunting season when you go.
