I have spent many Januarys in S FL, and have looked for decent walking trails. This is the closest I've come to feeling surrounded by nature without heading to the Everglades. Yes, there is the noise from the nearby parkway but if you go to the trail via the Yamato Nature Preserve, there is the scent of pine and the soft feel of pine needles which line the trail. Farther along the trail is paved, and I wondered if the nature area has here for awhile since it seems paved trails are a thing of the past. The blue lupine trail itself is white sand covered passing through palm groves and across the El Rio levy. And there are blue lupine along the trail. So much of this area is built up. It was nice to find a trail where we could take a very long walk, and feel we were in a natural area.
