Located in Seminole County between the towns of Oviedo and Seminole, the 180-acre Geneva Wilderness Area offers a good variety of scenery as its system of red-blazed loop trails cross and border a shallow pond and travel into pastures and swampland. The native plant communities range from mixed hardwood swamp and mesic hammocks (sort of in-between a dry and wet hammock) to xeric oak, or lowgrowing oaks punctuated with bare white sand areas. Animals you could sight here include gopher tortoise, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, and grey fox.
