These are gentle interpretive walks, perfect for families to get their kids outdoors and listen to the hoot of a barred owl or the cry of an osprey within earshot of the train at the Magic Kingdom. Sadly it's only open part of the week Wed-Sunday. With a big, beautiful nature center and trails that are well-groomed, 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.

Well named...an easy trail through the pine forest that loops around the parking area by the Nature Center.

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.

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.
