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!

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.

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