Explore the most popular trails in Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Salt marshes on the Gulf of Mexico give way to a succession of swamps, hardwood forests, pine flatwoods and scrub, providing splendid opportunities for nature study and wildlife observation. The scrub is dominated by species such as sand live oak, myrtle oak and Chapman's oak, along with rusty lyonia and saw palmetto. Hikers and off-road bicyclists who want to experience a mosaic of Florida habitats will find it on the miles of trails that wind through the park. The shallow waters and numerous creeks near the salt marshes are ideal for canoeing and kayaking. Rental canoes and kayaks are available in the city of Cedar Key.

Nice trail for dog walking. There should be a trailhead sign as you near cut-off for parking area. Trail is not the least bit shaded...take water!

It did not feel like nature. It felt like a walk down a desert road. They ruined the trail with making it look and feel like a road. Debbie Downer? Yes! haha
