I always love to visit Morning Side! Before you set out on a trail, you can say hello to Penny the cow and feel what it was like back in old Florida.
There are different trails you can set out on. You can either go for a full circle, or decide to take some short cuts.

We walked these trails early in the morning. It was very peaceful and beautiful and not crowded. There is an element of danger as most of the trail wanders between a palmetto forest, but that adds to the experience. There are also a couple of boardwalks through cypress tree groves.
