Silver Springs State Park

On the first Sunday of every month join park staff for a tram tour of the longleaf pine forest. Learn about the park's land management practices and how we care for our natural resources. Wildlife sightings are common but not guaranteed. Possible fauna seen during this program include white-tailed deer, gopher tortoise, Sherman's fox squirrel, and wild turkey.

Along the way the tram will stop so participants can take a short guided walk on the swamp trail. A park ranger will lead visitors down the boardwalk to the Silver River. After the hike the tram will return to the main entrance.


Free with regular park admission.
