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!
