Big Pine Tract - Chinsegut Wildlife and
Environmental Area 

Hernando Audubon

Established 1959

Trip leader:
Eileen Riccio

Meet at 8 a.m.


The entrance to the Big Pine Tract is at 12060 Old Crystal River Road, 1 mile north of where it intersects with U.S. Highway 41, just north of Brooksville. Meet in the parking lot, which is on the east side of the road.

We will walk the upland trail through longleaf pine habitat. The trail eventually leads down to the lowlands and into a lovely oak hammock. There is a 40-foot change in elevation making for a variety of vegetation and birds. Expect to see many woodpeckers and winter passerines. The walk is about 2 miles.

Field Trip Guidelines
Fields trips are open to everyone interested in birding. Non-members are welcome.
To participate, contact the trip leader
