Helen and Allan Cruickshank Sanctuary

Hours of operation: Monday through Sunday, day use only.

Visitors to the Cruickshank Sanctuary can hike the trail on the western portion of the 140-acre sanctuary. This trail winds through pine flatwoods habitat where raptors may be circling overhead or perched in high pine trees. Patches of oak, sand pine scrub, and freshwater depression marshes add to the Sanctuary's diversity.

Acquired in partnership with the State of Florida.
