Not many people know about the Chassahowitzka Salt Marsh Trails that are just a short drive out of Old Homosassa on Mason Creek Road.
At the end of the 1/4 mile trail is the Laslinger tower with spectacular views of the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Refuge.
We usually ride our bikes. The trail is a little sandy but not too difficult to ride.
There’s a kayak launch at the end of the trail by the tower. While the area looks tempting for kayaking, it’s just too far to carry them.
There is no water available and the website says no restrooms, but I did spot a porta-potti when we went there a few weeks ago.
It’s a beautiful place to view the refuge.
