The two main areas there are the Wilderness Park and Hillsboro State Park. Not just hiking but biking as well. Here are some pics from the area:
First day there on our way into the
Wilderness Park we saw sandhill
cranes! Although we heard them
a few times after that day, we did
not see any more.

|Hillsboro State Park boasts a very nice suspension bridge|
|a little ringed snake, they don't get longer than 15 inches|
|the stripes on this zebra longwing should be yellow but the camera will not pick that up!|
lots of woodpeckers around
we also saw pileated
|golden silk spider|
|at Hillsboro there is a good river for kayaking|
|oaks and palmettos at Wilderness Park|
Wilderness Park had plenty
of wildlife as you can see
from these pics.
That includes gators, however,
we only got to see one
of those while there.
