This EEL managed area is made up of a few ecosystems. It is mainly an open scrub with a short marked trail system. There are a number of “fire breaks” which could be explored, but the day I was there they were just soft sand and not that comfortable to walk on. The small loop trail I believe was setup by Troop 362 as an Eagle Project (a sign along the trail seems to state that). I assume you can venture out on a few of the trails which crisscross the area. I did see a few songbirds and at least one Bald Eagle the day I visited. There are a few GEOCaches on the property if you’re into that. There are a number of Scrub Jays located in the sanctuary – please do not feed them as it can do them great harm. It seems in some areas of Brevard scrub jays are highly regarded and very well protected. These scrub jays are still living their free life; their only protection is their own fortitude to survive! As you can see it is a very short hike, but it was a nice hike. I only found one flower out there; wildflowers are harder to find, at least in 2013/2014. Pets are not allowed, so leave your furry friend home.
