Hike Summary: This tract of land is not a park but is public land open to recreation such as hiking, horsebackriding and camping in some areas. As such, it is not maintained to the level of a state park. The roads are usually mowed but there can be some overgrowth during the summer and high growth times. The area is beautiful lush cabbage palm hammock with cypress and other hardwood. Very few people hike out here. Very isolated, great solitude,
