Seacrest Scrub Natural Area-Boynton Beach

Seacrest Scrub is one of those places we drove by hundreds of times and finally stopped to check it out. This natural area consists of 54 acres that have been left undisturbed even though it is surrounded by residential and commercial property. You enter the trail on the east side of seacrest Blvd, just south of Bethesda hospital and before you get to Delray Beach.
Today was a perfect day to walk through and observe the beauty and peacefulness of this hidden treasure.

Lots of gopher tortoises call this home and burrows
like this are located throughout.
Their presence is also evidenced by the bite marks on the prickly pear cactus.
