Beyond those quick jaunts, however, we have one hidden trail in Florida that will lead you to an archaeological treasure you would never expect to find. Nature, petroglyphs, and a ceremonial mound complex built more than 2,500 years ago—this is one Florida hike you do not want to miss.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
