Hal Scott Preserve
For an all-day getaway, consider a trip to this lovely spot. The park offers nearly 9000 acres of unspoiled Florida wilderness. Hike miles of trails along the scenic Econlockhatchee River and perhaps spot some of Florida's famous wildlife along the way. If you prefer more active recreation, consider making use of the preserve's off-road bicycling trails, fishing spots and horse trails. If you want to spend the night, the preserve does offer camping facilities (tents only). The park is located one mile west of SR 520 on Maxim, to Bancroft, South to Paddock, West to Dallas; follow signs.
The Hal Scott Preserve is a beautiful piece of unspoiled Florida. The trails are well maintained as well as the camp-sites. Every time I go there I see hawks, woodpeckers,wood storks, turtles and trees, lots of wonderful trees. If your a first time visitor I would suggest taking a map with you. There are usually some at the trail head on Dallas blvd. Take water and snacks and spend all day! Please don't litter.
