Moody Branch - Things to Do

Hikers and equestrians will find ample opportunities to spot plants and animals typical of Florida scrub habitats.

Wildlife Viewing

Well-managed habitats provide seasonal displays of wildflowers and opportunities to see wildlife such as gopher tortoises, Florida scrub-jays, woodpeckers, and a variety of resident and seasonal songbirds. Wildlife viewing opportunities will continue to improve as restoration proceeds.

Hiking and Horseback Riding

Visitors will enjoy hiking and horseback riding along the multi-use trail that traverses a variety of habitats. Hikers can explore intact scrub habitat on a short hiking trail that passes through this habitat. Wear a hat and sunscreen and carry plenty of water. Equestrians should apply for a Special Use-Other Permit (SUP) before visiting.
