The Malabar Trails and Greenways Committee is currently in the process of developing the Eagle's Nest Trailhead (ENT). This Trailhead will provide access to the northwestern corner of the Jordan Scrub Sanctuary, operated by the Brevard County Environmentally Endangered Lands (EELs) program. Future plans for the ENT include restrooms, a viewing platform, picnic tables, horse stables and ample parking for horse trailers. 

This sanctuary can be accessed currently by the Brevard County owned parking lot at the southern end of Marie Street, or the access point at the western end of Jordan Blvd.

A variety of habitat types are found in this 354-acre sanctuary. including scenic lakes, seasonal marshes, and scrubby flatwoods. While hiking through the diverse habitats, bald eagles can be spotted fishing for meals in the lake, and local scrub-jays seen foraging in the scrubby flatwoods. Recreational planning for the Jordan Scrub Sanctuary recently commenced-additional trails are planned for future development.
