Explore the most popular trails in Seabranch 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.

Ancient oceans shaped the physical landscape of this park, which allowed a variety of habitats to develop over time. Today, this preserve provides a unique opportunity to experience several different natural communities in a relatively short distance. In less than one mile, visitors can see rare sand pine scrub, scrubby flatwoods, a baygall community, and a mangrove swamp. Hikers can explore these natural communities over four miles of trails. A small picnic shelter is also available. Future recreational development is planned for this preserve, including the addition of interpretive displays and an elevated boardwalk. Located near Hobe Sound in eastern Martin County about 10 miles south of Stuart. Access to the park is from State Road A1A near the VFW parking lot.

I have looked at several websites and get different numbers for the trail lengths, al the way fro 1 mikle to 8. I can't find any trail maps either. Any suggestions?

Loved this! Got a little lost but the trail markers were great. It’s an all-sand trail so bring good shoes.

I love to hike the trail with my dogs seen wildlife quite often it’s a nice hike especially in winter the north loop is the most shaded and has the best scenery

The northern loop is a good sized loop. The sand trail portion is easy to walk/jog through (easy on the knees) and is a very clear path. The gravel part of the trail is more visually pleasing in my opinion. It is definitely a little more difficult to trek through, uneven ground and tree roots sticking up. The gravel path is more challenging and towards the end the trail is a little overgrown and hard to follow. I had to turn around and find the exit because I lost the path. Overall good length trail!

I tried to hike the full circle twice this week from different directions, but both times I got stuck in the section closest to the Intracoastal. The path literally disappears in the mud among the overgrown vegetation and mangrove trees, and no more trail markers are visible. It would be great to have a boardwalk in this section! Otherwise I really enjoyed hiking the sandy trails in the woods, but ended up hiking back on a wider road. It was tiring with the soft sand and blazing sun. Different colored markers for different trails would be helpful!
