Hidden Florida: The Atlantic Trailhead

The Conservation Levee Trail

The recently opened Atlantic Trailhead at the west end of the interchange between SR 869 (Sawgrass Expressway) and Atlantic Boulevard in Coral Springs is walking distance from my residence. The trailhead allows access to both the Conservation Levee Trail which runs along the Sawgrass Expressway and the Conservation Area Trail that cuts through the center of the Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area between the trailhead and US-27 just north of the interchange with I-75.

The trailhead has become quite a local destination to watch the sunset, with upwards of 100 people turning out on weekend evenings to photograph the sunset and walk the trails.  Stunningly well preserved given the close proximity to housing and sprawling urban development, it’s an oasis just at the end of an urban area.
