This is a large conservation area, county park area, and preserved lands connected by cooperation between state and local government in Seminole County spanning from Lake Jesup all the way to Big Tree Park all connected contiguously by the Florida Trail System and Cross Seminole Bike Trail.

Big Tree Park used to contain the oldest living cypress tree in Florida "The Senator" As of 1993, the Senator was estimated to be 3,500 years old, making it the 5th oldest tree in the world and at 17.5 feet wide the largest bald cypress known. In 2012, a 26 year old drug user, lit a fire inside the tree and killed it while doing meth. See tragic article at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Senator_(tree). Today only its smaller 2,000 year old companion is alive to appreciate.

Bike trails, hiking trails, and large bridge over the highway allows public use of the three conservation areas all the way from the large lake of the St. Johns River up to Big Tree Park.

In an continuing attempt to connect potential outdoor hiking feature in Florida on public lands and especially along the Florida Trail which extends a hiking trail across the length of FL, this is one of the largest masses of public accessible lands. The highest ground along the triple preserve area is in the southern portion of the Soldier Creek Park Preserve along US highway 17. It is a political HP with no prominence as the hilly feature's true "peak" is offsite on private lands to the SE (of course).
