The Hammock Preserve is a beautiful and peaceful area off Carlton Road. If you go in the summertime it is best early in the morning. You'll see many species of beautiful butterflies and birds.

Nicely laid out trails, but parts may flood and/or be very soggy in wet season. Ranger-led hikes offered on occasion, by reservation. Location is a bit out of the way, and be sure you finish up before nightfall. Lots of varied flora and birds, and occasional mammal.

Paleo Hammock is tucked away to the West of I-95 in Saint Lucie County. When you live east of I-95, which most of us do over here on the east coast, heading west might as well feel like we’re heading into the old west. The landscape is dramatically different. And this makes the trip all the more enjoyable. The kids... More
