Graham Swamp Preserve
5135 Colbert Lane, Palm Coast
Graham Swamp Trail is located in eastern Flagler County, between Colbert Lane and Old Kings Road. Its inviting trails encourage the exploration of this 3,084 acre conservation area. This preserve is home to "The Swamp" mountain bike trail — 6.7 miles of natural and man made features challenging all skill levels.
Origins of the Swamp
The historic headwaters of Bulow Creek originate in the large freshwater basin which is Graham Swamp. More than 2,500 acres of the property are covered by wetland hardwood swamp. The remainder of the property is forested upland that fringes the basin and forms small islands within the swamp. Graham Swamp had been heavily impacted by previous ditching, and the construction of dikes. However, it still performs the important ecological functions of retaining and filtering storm water runoff from developments located to the west and north.
The Graham Swamp Conservation Area helps maintain the integrity and quality of northeast Florida's coastal ecosystems and its associated ecological functions. The area supports a rich variety of wildlife, including birds, mammals, and reptiles. Visitors may hike, bicycle, fish from the banks, view wildlife, and study nature.
