Key Deer National Wildlife Refuge — Jack C. Watson Nature Trail
key deer nwr
Key Deer National Wildlife Refuge is home to the last remaining pine rockland habitat in the Florida Keys, and the Jack C. Watson Nature Trail cuts through it. It's tough, tough land, adapted to periodic fire. The plant life is scrubby — slash pines and palms in the canopy and saw palmetto below — but there are some incredibly beautiful wildflowers throughout, including some that exist nowhere else. The Watson trail is about two-thirds of a mile and loops through other habitats, including wetlands and hardwood hammock. In places, the trail can be wet and mucky — Photo by David Sedore
