Overview

Eleven distinct natural communities provide habitats for threatened and endangered species of plants and animals in Atlantic Ridge. The most dominant natural community in the park is the wet prairie, an important foraging area for herons and egrets, as well as the Florida sandhill crane and wood stork. The park is largely undeveloped and untraveled, making it the perfect place to get away from it all. There are many trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. In order to get into the park, you must contact the ranger station at Jonathan Dickinson State Park, located at 16450 S.E. Federal Highway in Hobe Sound. It is best if you visit that park first: there you may pick up a map of Atlantic Ridge, the access code for the park gate, and additional information. Even if you do not go there first, you must call the station at (772) 546-2771 the day of your visit to receive the gate access code. Some rangers or volunteers are there most of the time.

The park is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
