The Audubon Newhall Preserve is a series of short, easy walking
interconnected trails through a fifty-acre nature preserve. An
information and trail guide, available at the entrance, will guide you
through the area, where you will see a wide variety of trees and
plants, from Florida Scrub to native hardwoods. A feature of the
preserve is a rare pocosin (the Indian word for bog), which was once a
characteristic feature of barrier islands.
