This State Park is a raw, gorgeous piece of native Florida, with breathtaking habitats harboring a diversity of birds and wildlife. There are two, short hiking loops plus the Hiram Faver Interpretive Trail (composed of the 0.8-mile Pine Loop Trail and the 2.6-mile Plantation Trail) that wind through thick maritime hammock, flatwoods, sandhills and along an extensive salt marsh on Pellicer Creek. Check the estuary for Reddish Egrets, migratory ducks, Bald Eagle, American White Pelican (winter) and Clapper Rail. Resident woodland species include Barred Owl, Wild Turkey, Pine Warbler and Brown-headed Nuthatch. Over 20 species of wood-warbler have been recorded in the park during spring and fall migration, including Blue-winged, Cape May and Tennessee. Rent a canoe or kayak or bring your own and paddle Pellicer Creek State Canoe Trail for a chance to see River Otters. Guided tours can be arranged with advance notice. Several miles of park boundary roads and back roads can be hiked by prior arrangement – contact park staff for details. Due to the remote nature of this park, come prepared!
