The Scrub Ridge Trail is a beautiful short hike and provides the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife. The trail is located at the Merritt Island Wildlife Refufe off of SR 3. The Scrub Ridge Trail is a long looping trail that is the habit to Florida Scrub Jay – a bird found only in Florida. The scrub jay is an endangered bird and should not be fed or bothered in anyway. For more information visit the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge website at http://www.merrittislandwildlife.org/scrub-ridge-trail.asp.
I spent an hours or so hiking the trail and hoping to to see a scrub jay and take some wonderful photos. The trail has water along one side and you can see all kinds of other birds as well. I also saw pelicans, vultures, turtles, butterflies in addition to the scrub jay. Here are a few pictures I took during my walk.
The Scrub Ridge Trail is located at Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, I usually hike it whenever I visit the The Black Point Wildlife Drive – blog post at https://lilsusieq.com/black-point-wildlife-drive/.
Remember: Take nothing but pictures, kill nothing but time, leave nothing but footprints
