J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area - Hungryland Boardwalk and Trail

A 1.2-mile boardwalk and trail pass through slash pine flatwoods, a sawgrass marsh, and oak/cabbage palm hammock, and a cypress swamp. Good interpretive signs explain the plant communities and animals you may encounter on your visit. A spur of the Florida Trail can be accessed from the site.

Watchable wildlife:
Early morning and late afternoon may provide a patient visitor with a glimpse of a white-tailed deer or bobcat. River otters and raccoons are sometimes seen on the boardwalk. Pileated woodpeckers, barred owls, and screech owls are often heard in the canopy of cypress.  Herons, egrets, and common yellowthroats inhabit the marshes.
