|NATIONAL PARKS QUICKLINKS|
The habitat in Jonathan Dickinson State Park varies throughout, encompassing thirteen ecological communities. These trails offer sights of a slash pine forest, fabulous ferns, including royal ferns and the tall leather ferns, a variety of wildflowers, blueberry bushes and an abundance of saw palmettos. Bald cypress grace the shores of Kitching Creek while footbridges carry you over Wilson Creek. These trails get heavy use. If you're here to see wildlife, venture out early in the morning while the park is still relatively quiet. White-tailed deer are frequently seen along with a variety of wading birds and woodland birds. Osprey and bald eagles do nest within the park.
Directions from Stuart, FL: Travel 12 miles south along U.S. Highway 1. After entering the park, travel to the end of the main park road. The trail begins along the northeast corner of the parking lot.
