Fox Lake Sanctuary
Titusville, Florida

This 2,568 acre Sanctuary was acquired by the Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands Program in 2007 for its ecological significance and proximity to other conservation areas. The Sanctuary is located west of Fox Lake Park; the trailhead is located near the park boat ramp.

The Fox Lake Sanctuary trails provide opportunities to visit a variety of habitats including: pine flatwoods, oak scrub, hammocks and depression & freshwater marshes. They support many wildlife species including white-tailed deer, bobcat, Florida scrub-jays, wood storks, and sandhill cranes.

You can enjoy seven miles of hiking, kayaking, horseback riding and mountain biking trails here. A paddling trail is also available through the waters of Fox Lake and South Lake. Youth camping can be arranged in a prepared area.
Fox Lake Park is open from 7:am to dark.
