Get ready for some nature viewing and time alone on this web of winding trails, rail trails, and abandoned roads near the Penney Farms Forestry Station and acquired under the Florida Forever program.


Parking is simple. Just 1/4 of a mile east of the forestry station, there’s a well-maintained dirt road that leads back about 1000 feet to a grassy parking area with an adjacent covered picnic area with tables and a grill. There’s ample parking, but don’t be surprised to have the place to yourself. While Belmore State Forest Ates Creek Tract just to south is popular for picnics, the Satsuma Tract discussed here is barely used yet well-maintained.
