Scottsmoor Flatwoods Sanctuary West

This 1500-acre sanctuary straddles both sides of I-95, just south of Exit 5A (Stuckway Road) in Scottsmoor.  The site protects a variety of habitats including scrub, pine flatwoods, oak hammocks, depression marsh forested wetlands, and cypress forest.  Wildlife species include white-tailed deer, bobwhite quail, bobcat, wood storks, various wading birds, and gopher tortoises. 

 Access to the property is currently under development, with a primary access from the County’s Parrish Park Scottsmoor on Magoon Road off of US Highway 1 in Scottsmoor.

An equestrian trailhead is proposed adjacent to Parrish Park Scottsmoor, and an additional trailhead is proposed on the west side of I-95 off of Rose Marie Street.  Visitors are welcome to explore the property on foot, mountain bike and horseback, while the trails and trailheads are being developed.  The site is currently accessible by foot, horseback or non-motorized mountain bike from Rose Marie Street, International Avenue, and US Highway 1 just north of Flounder Creek Road.
