Hike West Malabar Scrub Area, Briar Creek Trailhead

Turkey Creek Kiosk

Come join us for a leisurely 2 hour hike through some of the many trails in the Malabar Scrub Area. We will meet at the Malabar Scrub West Trailhead.

Connected to the east side of the sanctuary via Cameron Preserve, it offers a very different palette of habitats along its 3.3 miles of trails than are seen in Malabar Scrub East.

The trail system is made up of three segments: the Red Trail Loop leads to a short Blue Trail Loop, which connects to the long Blue Trail South Loop.

The Red Trail narrows as it tunnels into oak scrub, making long, tight curves through the dense understory. Sand pines are visible beyond the oaks on the left.

This portion of the trail is nicely shaded by sand live oaks and rusty lyonia, a delight on foot.
After we hike West Malabar Scrub, we can cross over the street and enter Turkey Creek trail which leads to the boardwalk and picnic table
to take a break and have a snack if so desire!

Wear old shoes in case it is muddy!
Bring hat, water, snack, bug repellent. An easy and delightful trail!
