Getting There

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.

From Sanford, take County Road (CR) 415 to access the eastern portion of the conservation area (the Brickyard Slough Tract). A parking area is located on the east side of CR 415. To access the western portion (the Kratzert Tract), turn left on Reed Ellis Road from CR 415 and continue for about one mile to a parking area on the west side of the road.

Much shorter than listed in app, the southern end of this trail doesn’t appear to exist anymore, or if it does it can't be accessed directly from the parking area here at the Kratzert Tract, which is part of the larger Lake Monroe Conservation Area. And if you're looking for the Brickyard Slough, it's 1-2 miles southeast of here as part of Beck Ranch Park. I hope this helps clear up some confusion with the names. Most of this is nicely shaded but fairly average. Unlike a lot of trails in the area there is really no sand to wade through. It has a wide variety of trees in the loop but not a lot to really see other than the canopy above you.

This is not one of my husband’s and my favorite trails as of late. We will not go back. Beautiful and shady in some areas, but it was not well marked and we were not able to continue the loop as shown on the map.

Not well marked, we could not find a way to connect to the other trail so we were only able to do 1.4 miles on White Trail. Also ran into 6 bulls roaming the area who were not happy about us sharing the trail.

White loop was surprisingly nice, lots of enclosed tunnel like trails surrounded by towering oaks. Eventually opened up into a grassy pine flat wood as I neared the road and parking area.

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.

First to Review

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.
