Sanibel packs adventure beyond the beaches and bicycle paths. A little-known secret is the well-groomed yet seldom trekked hiking trails adjacent to SCCF’s vast new marshes. Over 50 acres of hardwoods were recently cleaned and gleaned to maximize wildlife habitat restoration and return the land to its origin. The removal of the hardwoods was located north of the Sanibel River, south of the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum and west to Rabbit Road.
If you have previously traveled by bike or foot on the SCCF’s network of trails (behind the Visitor’s Center), come back and view the amazing transformation of the open land. It’s a hiker’s dream and wildlife habitat spectacular.
