Miami Whitewater Forest

  • As the trail sneaks through the woods, the streams put on a disappearing act. One minute you see the water, the next it dives underground only to surface again a short time later. These underwater streams and other odd depressions in the landscape indicate that that we are treading near underground caves and sinkholes.
  • Large trees, such as white oaks, tower above the trail. The acorns of these trees provide valuable food and shelter for small animals like, squirrels and chipmunks, which can be seen scouring the ground for their next meal.
  • Large, oval shaped holes in trees hold clues that pileated woodpeckers are nearby. Their loud drumming can be heard as they establish territories, but keep an eye for the large, black and white woodpecker as it just might streak across the forest.
