Hugh Birch State Park Loop is a 1.9 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Fort Lauderdale, Florida and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
Short loop trail through tropical woods. Well signed. Butterflies and tiny lizards. Saw quite a few birds, parrots, herons, etc. Soaked by downpour but hey it's Florida who cares. Some mosquitoes. It's a state park, I paid the $2 pedestrian fee. Then rented a paddle board from the park on its freshwater lagoon. Very relaxing nobody else on the water, saw quite a few iguanas basking on tree branches. No mosquito on the lagoon.
Perfect little Park. One-way blacktop road with some ups and downs. Beautiful views. right on the intracoastal. Also has some back roads and trails near a scenic train trestle and other interesting areas. Well maintained.
Perfect for the middle of the day when you want to get out and do a quick safe bike ride.
I work on the beach and it's perfect for me.
Nice little park - sea of tranquility amid the hustle and bustle and development of surrounding Ft. Lauderdale area. Auto access from Sunrise Blvd and pedestrian access directly to/from beach with tunnel option even under A1A. Trails easy to hike. Water taxi access. Concession at A1A entrance. Only negative was water fountain off road just down from Water Taxi had cloudy water coming out of it.
I love this place. Lots of meandering trails with thick vegetation and slick reptiles. Paved trail around the park is great for biking safely.
Quiet, away from crowds, plants similar to Hawaii, short trail though and that's why the low score. Water taxi stops there.
Great variety of caches hidden in this park. Considering the trails and scenery the park is well worth a visit.
