“Quiet Spot with nature off the El Rio Trail”

Yamato Scrub Natural Area
Reviewed March 4, 2018

Nice side walk when you are walking for exercise on the El Rio trail (paved for bikers and walkers) between Yamato and Congress Avenues. This detour is quieter and still safe. You should bring water especially in summer. Turtles, iguanas, birds and keep eyes open for snakes / spiders.
Only negative are those that throw trash a few beer cans or water bottles. Pick them up there is a trash receptacle at the trail head

You can stay as long as you like. A 20 minute walk after lunch or two hours soaking up the natural beauties of the place. The trailhead is just off of Clint Moore and the bonus is the bathroom facilities, which PondHawk didn't have unless you went in the library. Yamato Scrub is not wheelchair accessable. Almost all of the trails are sand/dirt. There are only a few places to escape a downpour, so be prepared to shed the water somehow or get wet. Otherwise, be prepared to soak up a lot of Florida sunshine as it can get very warm.

Great for illegal dirt bike and ATV riding. Find lots of iguanas sunbathing. Great fishing in the adjacent canals and river.

Want to see Boca Raton before the condos and shopping centers took over? Here is a free-to-visit back to raw nature venue. You will find tons of native plants and insects, no crowds and a small parking lot. Its a great get away place for an hour to lose yourself on a trail that will make you feel that you got away. Definitely recommend.

Its good they have natural areas, you can see the animals, spiders, snakes and birds. Not that you can't see them in your back yards. But your back yards are landscaped. In the Scrub area its not so neat.
