A 0.9-mile loop through an excellent representation of habitats found in and around the Big Scrub, the Timucuan Trail remembers the people who once lived along the shores of Alexander Springs. The trail winds past small bubbling springs, climbs up into scrub forest, and descends through river bluff forest thick with Southern magnolia. It also traverses a hydric hammock beneath a dense canopy of cabbage palms along the far shore of the spring pool.
Directions: Follow the main path through the picnic area to the spring pool. Turn right. Follow the path along the spring pool to the trail entrance, which is marked with a sign. The interpretive trail is partially wheelchair accessible.
