Happy nature trails to you.

Time to get outdoors and back to nature

Florida's Space Coast is a natural wonder with 72 miles of beaches, waterways that flow throughout, and unique ecosystems to explore.  The Space Coast is home to more than 50 trails that range from smaller nature loops such as the Ritch Grissom Memorial Wetlands or larger trail systems with more possible wildlife and eco-diversity like the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

Look in the air and see Bald Eagles on the wing or a flock of Roseate Spoonbills resting in a lagoon-two of more than 300 species of birds found here along 40 stops of the Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trail. There are many nature trails visitors can stroll, bike, or hike down to experience the wealth of wildlife and native plants. It's only natural that you'll love the outdoors on the Space Coast.
