Stand still and listen to the breezes playing their tunes in the tall pine trees. There are plenty of trees here in this classic pine flatwoods, which was used for cattle grazing many years ago. Hike two miles through the property and along the perimeter. Don't miss an outstanding feature on this site. A loop trail with boardwalks leads to a rich hammock of live oak, cabbage palm, water hickory, bay trees and red maple. The hammock lines Ten Mile Creek. Nestled beside the creek is a canoe stopover and small observation platform. If you're wondering about launching there, it's a bit of a hike from the Miller/Wild parking lot to the stopover. Instead, put in at a nearby boat ramp located at White City Park, approximately three miles south of the stopover.
