About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

Across the street from Tuscawilla Preserve is the beautiful Thrasher trail. A short and easy stacked loop trail will take you through Florida’s natural flora and next to the Tuscawilla Lake. The wetlands consist of many small pools which favor wading birds, such as herons, egrets, ibises, and storks. Sandhill Cranes visit the site every fall, and several reside there on a full time basis. Raptors also use the area, as they nest and perch in the surrounding forest and forage across the open savanna. Reptiles and amphibians are common, including breeding populations of alligators, snakes, turtles, and frogs. Mammals include the entire suite of north Florida creatures such as deer, bobcat, raccoons, otters, and rodents.
