Comprising of pine, scrub oak, dogwood and other trees, it has an amazing aquatic maze of cypress ponds and spiraling creeks. It is also a great place for those who love to holiday outdoors. There are three picnic sites in the forest, the Blue Lake Recreation Area, Open Pond Recreation Area and the Leon Brooks Hines Public Fishing Lake. Whether it is mountain biking, target shooting, camping, fishing, boating, hiking, swimming or nature viewing, there is no dearth of activities here.
