Tuxbury Horse Trail

  

This 14-mile loop trail ambles along old railroad logging trams, traversing a wide array of habitat types from mature longleaf pine stands to bottomland hardwood drains. It offers captivating scenery to visitors who may glimpse prothonotary warblers darting among swamp cypress knees or endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers in search of food in the bark of majestic longleaf pines.
