Description

The Southeast quadrant of the park, known as the Coraci tract, was acquired in 1996. The western boundary of this tract is formed by the south prong of the Sebastian River. The trail system within this quadrant of the park is marked with blue blazes. The lands adjacent to the river are mainly a mix of scrub and scrubby flatwoods and lie along the Atlantic Coastal Ridge. Along this ridge you can find many hiking trails and see the charismatic Florida scrub jay. The center of the tract continues to remain an active cattle lease as an interim management tool until all other lands on the preserve are restored. The northern and western-most areas of the quadrant consist mainly of mesic flatwoods with imbedded wetlands such as wet prairie and depression marshes. All trails are multi-use and are open to hikers, bikers, and equestrians. Dogs are welcomed if they are maintained within the owners control on a 6 foot leash. The SE quadrant also has two primitive campsites, Mullet Camp and Tree Frog Camp, and an equestrian site known as Ranch Camp. A canoe/kayak “landing” is located at the Mullet Camp area. Several launches are located outside of the park. No motorized vehicles of any kind are permitted on the trail system. Vehicles are allowed on the main park road, WW Ranch Road from CR 512 north to the Mullet Camp parking area.
