Seven Mile Loop: Crystal River Preserve State Park

Visit WebsiteDriving Directions

This regularly maintained trail is at the end of State Park Road where it dog legs left and becomes N Sailboat Avenue.   Look for the dirt road.  It leads you to the trailhead.   The trail moves through Pine flat woods into mixed coastal marsh.  It then turns inland toward a freshwater woodland marsh and eventually transitions into hardwood hammock.  Benches are located at every mile marker.  Take water with you.  No facilities.  Trail can be muddy in spots after a heavy rain.  Best in the cool weather months since biting flies become a problem in summer.   The trail loops back around to a point about .75 miles from the trailhead.
