Cypress Creek Natural Area

Where Nature and History Merge Together. Shaded nature trails on either side of Indiantown Road offer wildlife viewing at every turn. Spanning both sides of Indiantown Road, over 2,000 acres of mesic flatwoods, wet flatwoods, hydric hammock, wet prairie, depression marsh, dome swamp, and blackwater stream provide a home to over 500 species of plants and 217 species of animals. This site preserves an area of high quality wetlands and streams, including Cypress Creek a blackwater stream, that buffer the northwest fork of the federally-designated Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River. Historical resources have been found including Native American Middens, an area where the Loxahatchee River Battle took place, remnants of the Rood Settlement dating back to the early 1900s, and a segment of the historic Jupiter-Indiantown Road. Visitors can hike, paddle, cycle, or ride their horse on designated trails while enjoying nature all around.
