James E. Grey Preserve hugs the shores of the winding Pithlachascotee River, protecting 80 acres of swamps and uplands. An extensive boardwalk follows the river’s sinuous path, creating the well-shaded Palmetto Loop with its beautiful overlooks along the river. A secondary loop, the Uplands Trail, provides a walk through an upland scrub habitat, where roserush and tarflower bloom in abundance and gopher tortoises ramble along the forest floor.
