Florida Trail

“Threading its way from the sugar sand beaches of Gulf Islands National Seashore in the Florida Panhandle to the cypress domes of Big Cypress National Preserve in the Everglades, the Florida National Scenic Trail (or Florida Trail for short) connects the state’s most outstanding scenic, natural, cultural and historic resources. The trail is approximately 1,500-miles long and is intended to offer a continuous, permanent non-motorized recreation opportunity for hiking and other compatible activities. Over its length, it showcases the incredible biodiversity, history, and rich culture of Florida.

I read somewhere that the first 30 miles of the Florida Trail are ‘some of the most difficult hiking in the United States’, so when looking for a challenge in late 2019, I decided to hike them! The ecosystem was entirely new to me, so it was a wonderful experience.
