Located in western Martin County, the Barley Barber Swamp consists of 400 acres of old-growth cypress and hardwoods.  Ancient bald cypress trees date back about 1000 years.

Although you wouldn't know it while walking through the swamp, the area is surrounded by Florida Power & Light Company's Martin County power plant.  They own the land and have set the area aside as a preserve.
