Park Activities

The shallow waters and numerous creeks near the salt marsh provide excellent opportunities for canoeing and kayaking. Rental canoes and kayaks are available in nearby Cedar Key.

Saltwater fishing is popular in the adjacent waters.

Nature Trails
The reserve utilizes existing jeep trails for multi-use trails, totaling about four miles on the east portion and eight miles on the western portion. The reserve is divided into two portions by CR347 which runs between Cedar Keys and Fowlers Bluff. These trails are primarily used for hiking, but are also available for bicycling and horseback riding. The diverse habitats of the reserve provide opportunities for nature study and wildlife observation.

A small picnic area with a waterless composting toilet is located at the trail head on the eastern portion of the reserve. A picnic shelter, picnic tables, grills, and informational kiosk are also located in this area. The trailhead has a stabilized parking area to accommodate about 15 vehicles.
