The park is one of the region's least discovered yet most remarkable natural habitats, with its five distinct eco-systems situated in the state's most densely populated county. Miles of trails meander through hardwood hammocks, sand pine scrub, pine flatwoods, willow marsh and the Lake Maggiore shoreline. As part of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Great Florida Birding Trail, Boyd Hill is a haven for even the most seasoned birder. There is also an environmental center with diplays portraying native florida and the ripple effect.

“Amazing place with wonderful wildlife and knowledgeable staff and volunteers”

We visited Boyd Hill last week and had an amazing experience, it offers a great experience and is great value for money. We did the tram tour and were amazed at how much we learnt. A great day out...
