The conservation area contains a large portion of the floodplain of Lake Monroe. Wetlands make up 94 percent of the conservation area. This provides flood protection, and protection of water quality and more than three miles of Lake Monroe and St. Johns River shoreline. It also protects fish and wildlife habitat. The predominant natural communities are floodplain marsh/wet prairie and floodplain swamp/forest. Years ago, Native Americans hunted and fished in the area. Now, the western portion of the conservation area is dedicated to Minnie Beck Kratzert, whose family owned the property until it was sold to the District in 1987.

Not well marked. Not much wildlife. But gorgeous tree canopy and calm environment.

Encountered turkey hunters so be respectful of noise.

It was good. Had some muddy marsh land spots to hike through. A couple trees were down, blocking the trail, assuming from hurricane Irma. It was cool hopping over them, so it was fine. Had a lot of spiderwebs to walk through, first thing in the morning. Was able to get through all of them just fine. Overall, good scenic peaceful hike.

Also used as horse trail so watch where you step.. last 1/4 of trail was flooded because of proximity to St. Johns river. Did not encounter much wildlife.

By far one of my favorite trails. I love to hike and be in the woods. On this trail, You can see everything possible when it comes to Florida Wildlife. I have seen Deers, Bobcats, Bears, Boars, Turkeys, Cows, Turtles, Snakes and Alligators on this trail. Trail is also well marked with white traingles painted on the tree's. Warning, Parts of this trail does flood during rainy season and is open to hunters during the hunting season. I hike this trail every chance I get and will be back again :)
