Spring Hammock Preserve

Enjoy a first-hand look at the Spring Hammock Preserve by joining Seminole County Natural Lands Program for SWAMP WALK. Prepare to trudge through thick, deep mud to explore the beauty of the hydric hammock.

Wear long pants and closed-toe, tie-on shoes that you don't mind getting down 'n' dirty in. And if you don't want to get eaten alive, we recommend that you wear bug repellant.

This is a hike that can be enjoyed by the entire family. So, get outdoors and enjoy the beauty that Seminole County has to offer.

Warning! Mud can get as high as your pants pockets.
