Spruce Creek Park - short nature walk to bird observation tower - Port Orange

If you are near Spruce Creek Park in Port Orange you will find that they have a nice short nature trail. From the main pavilion you walk back to the bird watching nature tower. Once you get past the board walk it is around 1/8 of a mile. In all it is about a 15 minute walk back to the tower. Some of it is done on the boardwalk, but some is done on rougher terrain. 

It's a great little walk through the woods back to the observation tower that overlooks Rose Bay. The marsh has many wading birds. This morning we saw egrets, herons, ibis, and others. This short trail is the perfect length for younger kids, too. You will pass wetter areas, where you can spot crabs. You will also see lots of other things along your walk. Once you get back to the bird observation tower climb to the top and look around Rose Bay.

A wheelchair or stroller could make it to the end of the boardwalk. After that the root systems from the trees may make it a bit difficult to navigate over them in a wheelchair or with a stroller. Here are a few of the pictures taken this morning on this short nature trail at Spruce Creek Park in Port Orange, which is located at 6250 Ridgewood Ave. in Port Orange.
