Quick Facts
Naval Live Oaks, Florida

This 2.0 mile out-and-back trail can be started the dirt parking area on Reservation Road, which is a residential area. The east side of the loop is a clearly distinguished, sandy fire break that will take you all the way to Highway 98. There is a side trail off the main Brown's Pond Trail that is much narrower and winding, and two join near the end of the main trail. This trail also intersects with the Beaver Pond, Old Quarry, and Andrew Jackson Trails.

Near the trailhead, visitors will see Brown's Pond, and may be able to observe wildlife that uses this area as their home. During the spring, listen for sounds of fish mating calls beneath the water.
