We are grateful for the Creeks Recreational Trail System, leading us through virgin forests and connecting over 10 miles of trails to Dauset Trails Nature Center and into Indian Springs State Park (natural mineral springs).
Dauset Trails Nature Center might have just everything: 30 miles of scenic hiking and mountain biking trails, plus a 5-mile looping equestrian trail. In the 1980s, Dauset Trails started with a self-guided trail that looped through the woods by a lake. Gradually, injured and orphaned animals began to be cared for near the Visitors Center. You can visit farm animals in the barnyard exhibits: mule, donkey, cows, pigs, goats, and chickens; and buy food to feed the ducks, geese, big catfish, bream, and assorted turtles that live in the lake behind the Visitors Center.
Just two miles from Dauset Trails Nature Center, in Flovilla, is Indian Springs State Park, one of the oldest state park’s in the nation. The park’s natural artesian spring has been used by generations of people for its flowing mineral water. Park guests can enjoy wading in Sandy Creek, walking nature trails, or biking.
