Cutting across shrubby pineland forest, this wide, rocky trail winds from Long Pine Key Rd west over 7miles (11km) to Pine Glades Lake through the heart of the Everglades rarest ecosystem. Birds, bugs, and blossoms abound along palmetto lined corridors of South Florida slash pines. Aside from seasonal washout zones through waterlogged prairie, the trail is dominated by dry, exposed limestone dotted with shallow pools. At the trails end by main park road, waterfowl, fish, and reptiles frequent the shores of Pine Glades Lake.
