Early Morning Hike at Alderman’s Ford Preserve

October 28 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Alderman's Ford PreserveJoin us on an early morning hike at Alderman’s Ford Preserve. This extensive corridor of natural lands – more than 10,000 acres worth east of Tampa – protecting the flow of the Alafia River. The Alafia River flows over limestone boulders as it winds through a deeply eroded channel, forming noisy, churning stretches of hydraulics that are mesmerizing to hear and watch. With open fields for birding and ancient live oaks in the dense river bluff forest this is a hike that you will never forget.

This is a great 4-mile hike that will take you through large oak canopy’s, Pine flatlands and along the Alafia River. Our guide will be pointing out the Flora and Fauna of the area along the way. This is a great area of Florida for bird watching and locating other native wildlife.

This cost of this hike is $10.00 per person
