Soak Up the Scenery Along the Apoxee Trail
August 16, 2017 | bridge
Critters of all shapes and sizes crisscross the Apoxee Trail at regular intervals, from prowling bobcats to trotting white-tailed deer to swooping great horned owls. Once you step onto the trail, you'll understand exactly why so many animals call the surrounding woods home. Trees tower overhead, fanning out into a sun-dappled green canopy, and the aroma of earth and rain floats in between the stretching branches.
Whether you're interested in exploring the beautiful scenery via a slow, easy stroll or a more strenuous hike, you can do it at the Apoxee Trail. Stick to the shorter paved portion of the trail, which is accessible to everyone, or adventure out onto the natural trail that snakes away from the asphalt. The natural trail is a blend of boardwalks and sand meandering through wetlands and pine flatwoods. Note that heavy rain can sometimes cause flooding of the natural trail, so try to plan your hikes around inclement weather.
