Sabal Point Sanctuary is located just West of Interstate 4 and North of SR 434 and is part of the Wekiva River Bluff Conservation Area.  This 3.5 mile roud trip hike starts from a very small neighborhood parking area that is not marked anywhere until you find the parking and trailhead.  It is used mostly by local neighborhood residents but is a very beautiful and short hike with lush floodplain forest of hardwoods, ferns, and sabal palms. On one occasion we ran across a large black bear and watched it scratching for food along the old logging road for quite some time.  Deer and other wildlife can be seen on occastion as well.

Directions: From I-4 take exit 94 for SR 434 and drive West for approximately 1 mile. Turn right on
Wekiva springs road and continue for .9 miles to Sabal Palm Drive.  Turn right and continue on the winding road for about 1.5 miles to Wilderness Drive. Turn right and go a short distance into the small parking area for the trailhead. The parking and entrance can be seen in this picture.  Wilderness Drive ends where the parking begins.
