The 268-acre Beck Ranch site was originally a working cattle ranch in Osteen. There is a Red Trail and a Yellow Trail that can be accessed through the park, but the trails themselves leave the park and wind through the larger Lake Monroe Conservation Area. Because this trail is in the floodplain of the St. Johns River (Florida's largest and longest river), it's prone to flooding during the summer months and into the early fall. About 95 percent of this trail is also open so there is very little shade. There is a primitive camp site and shelter at the end of trail with direct access to the river. The trail can also be accessed from the river but there is no formal landing or launch site. This is a county park with no cost for admission.Show more

The 268-acre Beck Ranch site was originally a working cattle ranch in Osteen. There is a Red Trail and a Yellow Trail that can be accessed through the park, but the trails themselves leave the park and wind through the larger Lake Monroe Conservation Area. The Yellow Trail does not offer any water views but is not as prone to flooding as the Red Trail. This trail is also longer and has a mix of shaded and open areas, some of it wide with grass and other parts with thick sand. You are far more likely to see wildlife on the Yellow Trail than the Red. There is a group camping site that can be accessed directly off Lemon Bluff Road. This is a county park with no cost for admission.Show more
