East Coast Greenway

East Coast Greenway

A great way to experience Seabranch Preserve State Park is the section of the East Coast Greenway that runs through the park. Accessible from the main parking area, the 1.7-mile paved path is perfect for hiking, biking or just a casual stroll through the park. As you travel along, you will be treated to an up-close view of the ancient sand pine scrub habitat, home to gopher tortoises, scrub jays and bobcats. 

Stop and take a closer look at some of the plant species that line the trail such as blazing star, gopher apple and large flower rosemary. Rest for a while at one of the trailside benches and you might spot one of our resident eagles flying overhead. The southern end of the trail treats visitors to a view of the park’s pine flatwoods and baygall natural communities. The baygall community is unique with its abundance of red and sweet bay tress.

Whether you are looking to exercise outdoors and get “park fit,” take a bike ride or just casually explore the park, the East Coast Greenway has something for everyone.
