Ancient cypresses rise tall in the thick of the floodplain forest that parallels Salt Springs Run, tall enough to have provided shade when botanist William Bartram visited the springs in 1774. The 1.3 mile loop starts and ends at the edge of the campground, providing a gentle interpretive walk through typical Big Scrub habitats out to a boardwalk through the swamp. Don't miss this oasis of the ancients on your visit to the Salt Springs Recreation Area.
Directions: The trailhead is near the old restrooms by the tent camping area between the campground and the swimming area. A small parking area is available within the campground, or park at the swimming area and walk back on the unpaved connector road to the campground to find the trailhead.
