Florida National Scenic Trail, or simply the "Florida Trail," runs through 1,300 miles ranging from the Big Cypress Preserve to the Gulf Islands. It's one of Florida's largest protected natural areas.
If you love hiking and live in South Florida, you’ve got to check out the Florida Trail especially now that it’s added a new section Cimarron, which extends west of State Road 85 in Crestview. This new path is 8.9 miles and dead-ends at the Yellow River. If you’re into wading through shallow waters, bushwhacking your way through trees and relaxing in a hammock at the end of it all, this is a trip for you.
The Florida Trail is a great way to experience South Florida’s ecosystem in all its glory. Kids will love it, and so will you!
