Awesome trail. Little muddy on palmetto passage, did catch a glimpse of a Bob cat. Would highly recommend.

Tibet-Butler Preserve does NOT allow dogs or bikes. Please refer to the official Orange County website before you visit.

This is a fairly easy hike on flat land near urban developments. The trails are well marked and maintained. You actually walk through a variety of habitats including pine forests, palmetto scrub, wild blueberry patches, and swamp area that have elevated walkways for observation time. I would not categorize it as a "moderate" hike but more of an easy trek. I would recommend this walk to anyone!

I attempted a portion of the trail and then turned back. I was forewarned at the Nature Center that this is the lowest area of the park and it is often very muddy and wet from the runoff. That is what I found during my visit. I enjoyed the rest of my experience at the park however.

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.
