Titusville Outdoors

When you consider the lands managed by the U.S. Fish and Game Service (Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge), the National Park Service (Canaveral National Seashore), the St. Johns River Water Management District, the Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands (EELS) program, and the Brevard County Parks and Recreation Department, The North Brevard County area around Titusville has one on the highest percentages of publicly owned land of anywhere in the State, offering a variety of hiking opportunities.

These trails showcase a variety of our local habitats, from salt marsh, maritime hammocks, mesic hammocks, pine flatlands, coastal strand, coastal scrub, Atlantic Coastal Ridge uplands, and freshwater marsh habitat, all of which provide opportunities to view much of our native flora and fauna. Some of these species are unique to these particular habitat and are found nowhere else.

This page is a quick reference table just below with links to two other pages. Page one details primarily dayhikes on Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge, Canaveral National Seahore, and in several parks and refuges within Titusville. One exception is the Beach Camping available from the North end of Canaveral Seashore.

Page two details areas to the west of Titusville within the St John's River drainage basin. These are more challenging hikes, some of which offer primative camping, as well as off road bicycling and horseback riding.
