As of 5:00 p.m., Friday, June 12, 2015, all fire related closures within Big Cypress National Preserve will be lifted. This allows visitors to once again access the entire Florida National Scenic Trail within the Preserve boundaries, and areas of the Addition Lands north of Interstate 75.

All non-fire related closures remain in effect. This includes the annual 60 day recreational ORV access closure that was implemented on June 1, 2015, and will remain in effect through July 30, 2015.
