Stephen J. Wortham Park
A majority of preserves and some parks are now open. Visit the COVID-19 Closures & Reopenings page for more info.
Location and Hours
The portion of the red trail connecting Stephen J. Wortham Park to Rhodine Scrub Nature Preserve is currently closed due to a washout. Those wishing to access Rhodine Preserve during this time can use a walk-through gate onto the yellow trail, located at 12560 Rhodine Rd. You will have to park on the side of the road to use this access point.
Much of the park's undeveloped terrain is typical of Florida's hardwood hammocks. There are sand, slash, and longleaf pines; live, water, and scrub oaks; lots of saw palmetto and other understory plants; and animals such as gopher tortoises, box turtles, and foxes.
