The Great Outdoors

The Great Outdoors at Babcock Ranch

Babcock Ranch is a sustainable town in the making and we’re open to anyone to come explore. If you’re not in the mood for dining or shopping, we have many other things to do. Rent a kayak or canoe from Curry Creek Outfitters or take a stroll on the boardwalk in front of Table & Tap. Cast a line from our fishing dock by Lake Babcock or take a hike (or bike!) on our 5 miles of nature trails (our trail system will eventually reach 50 miles). Our natural amenities make Babcock Ranch a wonderful place for everyone to enjoy.

Hiking Trails

Once you’re ready to step away from the hustle and bustle of Founder’s Square, take a bike or hike throughout Sunset Trail and unwind in nature. As of spring 2018, we have 5 miles that are open and anyone is welcome to use them. It’s the start of a trail network extending over 50 miles once completed.

Curry Creek Outfitters

Curry Creek Outfitters is the perfect place for you to kick off an exploration of Babcock Ranch. Visit our outfitters store to find gear such as sunscreen, outerwear, fishing gear, and more. Curry Creek Outfitters also offers kayak and canoe rentals to take out onto our lake and bicycles to explore the town.

Get your exercise in while experiencing the best in Florida outdoors! Rent a bike to ride around Lake Timber, Founder’s Square, or on our Sunset Trail, the first few miles of our trail system.

Kayaking & Canoeing

Experience all that nature has to offer when you take a kayak or canoe out on Lake Babcock. You’ll find our kayak and canoe launch at the end of the boardwalk in Founder’s Square. Kayak rentals are available at Curry Creek Outfitters, located inside Woodlea Hall.

Electric Boat Tours

Kid’s Playground

We think technology is the way of the future, but we also believe that play is incredibly important to a child’s social and physical development. Each Babcock Ranch neighborhood will have a good, old-fashioned place just for kids (or for the kids at heart) to play and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.

Dog Park

Need a place to enjoy outdoor time with your favorite pup? Stop by one of our dog parks where you can mingle with other dog-lovers while your furry friend gets their daily exercise.
