Please note that the Long Pine Key Trail is not currently being maintained because of potential damage to critical habitat in the area for the Florida leafwing and Bartram's scrub hairstreak butterflies and their host plants. These are butterflies that are native to South Florida.
Park staff are reviewing trail management techniques to develop strategies that won't affect this habitat so that we can reinstate trail management in the future. For now the trail remains open but you should be aware of terrain that should be traversed carefully and may have vegetation, branches, or other flora and fauna that could affect your hike.
Trail Length: Over 22 miles (35 km) of connecting trails
Bicycles Allowed: Yes
Trail Description: Connecting trails through the Pinelands run 7 miles (11 km) west from the Long Pine Key campground to Pine Glades Lake along the main park road.
Directions to Trail: Many trails start around the Long Pine Key Campground, 7 miles (11 km) from the main park entrance/Ernest Coe Visitor Center. You may also park on road shoulders near the gates where trails meet paved roads.
