Description

One of Seminole County’s most delightful natural lands, Black Bear Wilderness Area offers some of the best birding and wildlife watching in the region. True to its name it is a place to find bear scratches on trees, bear prints on the ground, and the Florida black bear itself. This trail is one of Florida’s most beautiful hikes and showcases Florida’s enchanting jungle-like floodplain forest.

This is a loop trail and requires commitment to complete the entire loop, there are no shortcuts. The rugged terrain provides for a more challenging hike than usually encountered in Florida but rewards you with stunning views of the St. John’s river and many wildlife sightings.
