    Could be nice?

    Note: this is separate from the silver springs state park. No trail map on official website or at trailhead for conservation area (try alltrails.com?). Forest. Unsure if there's any water views, but for the short walk I took there were none. No restrooms. Leashed dogs welcome. This nature park offers dirt parking & nature trails. The conservation area consists of three types of natural communities: Sandhill, Upland Mixed Forest, & Wet Prairie. Whitetail deer, Sherman’s fox squirrel, gopher tortoise, black racer, yellow rat snake, northern cardinal, towhee, pileated woodpeckers are commonly seen. This 330-acre property was the largest intact, undeveloped, privately-owned tract adjacent to Silver Springs, a first-magnitude spring. The property is in an area of springs, which are discharged from the Floridian Aquifer within the Silver Springs watershed & was purchased to help protect our ground water & Silver Springs by preserving this sensitive water recharge site.
