Tibet-Butler Preserve offers a spot of wilderness in the dense urban mass to the west of Orlando. The trail system loops through many of the major habitats found in this region, including longleaf pine forest and scrub, bayhead swamp and cypress-lined lakeshore. These are gentle interpretive walks. Open part of the week Wednesday-Sunday.
I took a short break from our Disney trip in August to get in some nature. Entries for Pine Circle, Fallen Logs and the Lake Tibet boardwalk spur were removed and combined here. This is a nice trail system and a good place for spotting wildlife. I shared a moment along the Fallen Logs Trail with a gopher tortoise. I completed all but the muddy/wet Palmetto Trail for an approximately three mile circuit.
This is one of my go-to parks for a nice relaxing nature walk in Central Fl to get away from the crowds. It can be buggy in the summer so be sure to bring bug-dope.
Nice trails. Good area for kids, very educational things inside the ranger house. Turtle preserve. Easy quick hike to the lookout.
The Tibet-Bulter Preserve is a nice place for an easy suburban hike on wide, soft, grassy trails. There are several short trails you can patch together to make into a 3 or 4 mile hike. Unfortunately, you're never that far from civilization and can often hear traffic or see housing developments along the path. Because of this, don't expect to see much wildlife other than birds and insects. The trails are marked but oddly configured and don't flow together all that well. There is a nice environmental center and plenty of parking which makes this a good spot to visit with families. For experienced hikers, there are far better options unless you're just looking for an easy walk in the park.
The sign says this is closed but the blockades blocking this trail were gone & I went down it with out knowing I went down it. You can see this area got hit hard with the firel.
