Great short, mostly shaded hike. Saw lots of what you would expect to see here- ferns, wild coffee, and malberry. Mosquitos actually weren’t bad, which was surprising for August.

Highlands Hammock is one of our favorite Florida State Parks and we love the variety of trails for all ages and abilities. We particularly enjoy this one for the boardwalk and the variety of plant life. This is where North Florida and South Florida meet!

This is always a favorite of ours when we visit the Hammock. We've gotten to see some gators and a few baby gators during summer and fall seasons. The boardwalk is easy to walk on and I would recommend it for all ages!

Nice trail! Lots of wildlife. I found an armadillo foraging and lots of birds were around. It took less than 20 min.

Nice trail to link together with others within the park if one would like to create a longer hike. Varied habitat consisting of palmettos, oaks, pines, and a swampy area. Photographed a water moccasin sunning on a felled tree near the swamp today. Interpretive markers appear along the trail (make sure to get a park map at the ranger station as the markers are numbered to correspond with the map). Still visible are cuts (sometimes called “cat faces”) made in some of the larger pines. These cuts were made to collect resin, which was used to make turpentine. Very shady trail with many pine roots. Not too buggy today, but this trail seems to have one of the heavier concentrations of deer flies when temps are warmer.

Really cool, unique spot. Fun for families. Keep in mind that at one section the boardwalk gets narrow with railing on only one side, so make sure your kids can handle that.

Our family really enjoys this trail. It really showcases Florida's swamp and bush very well. It's very relaxing and tranquil and we often see fish, song birds and alligators. Highly recommend.

EZ Trail, not much to see and no shade so it's very hot during the day.

Nice trail. No wildlife due to noisy weekend hikers. Will try this one again in the middle of the week.
