  • Spruce Bluff Preserve is 97 acres. In the 1990's a community of more than 60 homes was planned for the area but in 1995 the St. Lucie County saved the historic spot by buying the land and making it...

  • Enjoyed the trail. Beautiful scenery, and I particularly liked the self-guided markers and corresponding info on the brochures. The tombstone was neat as well. Took less than an hour for this side...

  • This an easy walk through the wetlands of a nature preserve in Port Saint Lucie but without getting too wet. The vegetation and possible wildlife you may see is typical of this Florida region and supposedly there is an old Indian mound at the end of the longer trail. This longer of the two trails can get muddy. There is a short trail (where you park) which is mainly dry and hard packed and ends in a cemetery marker and if you cross the street, it continues briefly to the shore of the St Lucie River. The longer trail is more challenging (because of the mud) but much more interesting. The long trail will take about 1:30 roundtrip at an easy pace. And yes, there are snakes and gators (it's Florida!) watch your pets and small children.
  • Nice short hike. About 2 miles end to end RT to the north and south end of trail. In early April, trails were dry and had no mud. South part from lot had beautiful views of lake. Part shade on trail, mix of dirt and sand.
