Our November walk will not be an alli-walk at Alligator Lake
due to a runners event.
JOIN US for a walk on the Bellamy Road Trail
Saturday, November 1st
Meet at 8:30 at the trail head located on HWY 441
1 mile south of the entrance to O'Leno State Park.
Entrance to the Trail Head is Free.
There is a FWC Birding Trail sign on Rt. 441 about 1 mile south (toward High Springs) of entrance to O'Leno State Park. Bellamy Road is a gravel road on the left if you are coming from the north; follow for about 1 ½ miles to a marked parking area on left. Trailhead past restroom. Trail traverses sandhills and adjoins scrub, then drops into floodplain of Santa Fe, which is very watery- a good thing for birdyness. Trail goes up-slope through mixed pines; turns left and then intersects Sweetwater Trail back around pines again to the left; then drops down and crosses floodplain again. This is birdiest portion. Sweetwater Trail then goes up-slope again; cuts through scrub and crosses Bellamy Road, at which point you turn right to trailhead. Lots of mosquitoes near flooded swampy areas.
