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

Freshwater marshes, or 'savannas,' once extended all along Florida's southeast coast. Stretching more than 10 miles from Ft. Pierce to Jensen Beach, this preserve is the largest and most intact remnant of Florida's east coast savannas. A good place for visitors to start is the Environmental Education Center, where they can learn about the importance of this unique and endangered natural system. Picnic tables are available near the center. Canoeing, kayaking, and fishing in the wetlands are popular activities. Wildlife enthusiasts and photographers can enjoy the diversity of habitats this undisturbed area offers. Over eight miles of multi-use trails provide opportunities for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. Guided walks and canoe trips are available by reservation. The Education Center is located in Port St. Lucie, two miles east of U.S. 1 on Walton Road.

Early August. Trail is completely flooded. Still pretty in its own way, but be prepared for a swamp walk.

Great trails to just get out in the wilderness and get some exercise. Completely flat and mostly sandy. The Yellow trail is pretty and has 2 bridges along the way that offer nice views. No shade....and on the return part of the loop (section of the white trail) four different places were flooded and impassable by cycle power. Water depth past my knees. So if it has been raining- I suggest to just double back on yellow trail to keep your feet dry.

sugar sand throughout.

Decent trails. Can be a little muddy at times. Bring plenty of water in the summer and wear comfortable hiking shoes.

Great hike in the area with wide trails, not overly sandy, and hardly any people (or in our case, none). Good bird-watching and some diversity of environment throughout the loop trails.

Nice trail...sand is soft, making it a little difficult to walk on. We enjoyed the marsh overlook, which I hear is underwater during the rainy season.

Short trail, scenic trail with white sands that leads to a narrow path into the marshland and overlooks the preserve!
