Trail Guide

“In Every Walk with Nature, One Receives Far More than He Seeks.”  John Muir



    Make sure that you check the Cypress Preserve's

    website ( for the

    Cypress Preserve Nature Trail Guide before you

    begin your walk through the Cypress Preserve.

    As emphasized by John Muir in the introductory

    quote above, our trail guide will enhance your

    understanding and enjoyment of the preserve by

    providing you with a self-guided tour as you

    journey along the half-mile trail which circumscribes

    its outer perimeter.  Your path will take  you through

    such topographic features as meadows, bottomland

    hardwood forests, and cypress brakes.  


     Along the way, you will be guided by numbered informational signs at numerous stopping             points, each of which is indicated in the trail guide. We recommend that visitors first read each       informational sign, then read the corresponding information in the trail guide, authored by             Lynn Cox and Lynn-Libous Bailey. In this manner, visitors can acquire greater insight into such         ancient wetland ecosystems which are rapidly disappearing from the landscape. Tours are               available for groups upon request.
