This little gem is nearby and often quite birdy.

We will meet leader Roxy Ohanyan at the trailhead, to explore along the northern shoreline of Biven’s Arm. Come explore this 114-acre park with AAS and find some of the 139 birds reported here in the past. There is a small floodplain marsh, bottomland hardwoods, and mesic mixed hardwood forest habitat. The trail may be muddy or wet and does have some uneven ground and can be narrow in places.

Weekend parking should be available in UF Department of Animal Science lot. The Trailhead main entrance is at the intersection of Shealy Drive (on the west side of the UF Vet School) and Richie Road.

Difficulty: 2 (Walking over uneven ground or distances of 1-2 miles)
