Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve
There aren't too many salt water marshes on the Gulf of Mexico, but at Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve, there are a lot of natural habitats on display. Swamps, hardwood forests, pine flatwoods, and scrub are just a few of the nature scenes that await the studier of nature and/or photographer. It's also a great place for wildlife observation since the area is completely natural. Hikers and off-road bicyclists will also enjoy their time here with the miles of trails that wind through the park. In certain areas of the park, the shallow waters of the creeks make for the perfect canoeing and kayaking waters, and rentals of these items are near the city of Cedar Key if you don't have your own.
