While the Wet to Dry Nature Trail at Wekiwa Springs State Park is the shortest of all of the park’s hiking trails, it’s also the busiest. Starting near the outflow of Wekiwa Springs as it forms the Wekiva River, this interpretive boardwalk showcases the floodplain forest edging the spring run before it lifts you into the uplands above the spring. An easy wheelchair-accessible and family-friendly walk, it’s a don’t-miss on your next visit to this popular state park.
