The Gorgeous 2.25-Mile Hike In Florida’s Marshlands That Will Lead You Past Huge Cypress Trees
The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in Florida sits just 30 minutes east of Naples. This magical sanctuary offers guests a rare glimpse into the heart of the ecosystem of the Everglades. While there are many ways to enjoy nature throughout the 13,000-acre space, we recommend hiking the 2.25-mile boardwalk trail. This trail takes hikers through the marshlands, wet prairies, and Pine Flatwoods. But perhaps the most exciting aspect of the whole hike is seeing the largest remaining stand of old-growth Cypress trees in North America!
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
