Oakland Nature Preserve
747 Machete Trail,
Oakland, FL 34760
My husband and I recently wanted to start a new tradition of a weekly hiking excursion. We have a 9 month old daughter and want her to experience nature from a young age. So what we have done is get together 20+ different hikes in our local area, print them out, and once a week we randomly select one to hike. It's like a surprise each week!
This week we pulled at random Oakland Nature Preserve. It was a wonderful choice. This place is tucked back into some neighborhoods and in fact you have to drive thru a church parking lot to get to it.
