Scenic Highway Forests

Our Remarkable Woodlands

The Scenic Highway is home to both forest uplands and floodplain wetlands. The diverse ecological terrain includes pine-flatwoods, xeric-oak, temperate hardwoods, live oak hammock, stream and lake swamps, mixed wetland hardwoods and cypress communities. Dozens of different trees—from live oak and flowering dogwoods, to water tupelo and starry magnolia—can be seen along the Scenic Highway.
