A new pedestrian/bicycle entrance to Split Rock Conservation Area is open for public use. The entrance is located just north of the Portofino neighborhood on SW 20th Avenue and is easily reached from RTS bus route 76. We invite you to come and explore the trails in this beautiful natural area! Near the sinkhole where Hogtown Creek disappears into the Floridan aquifer, Split Rock Conservation Area protects acres of forest and wetlands. Forested areas include diverse calcareous hammock with limestone outcrops, sinkholes, and majestic oak and hickory trees. Split Rock also contains portions of Hogtown Prairie, a vast wetland marsh which is seasonally flooded by Hogtown Creek.
