Love the trail and we take it when we camp at the Long Pine Key campground. Hiking here provides an environment with less mosquitos than hiking south around flamingo

Did two separate sections of this trail over the weekend. The weather was around 70 degrees which decreased the amount of mosquitoes. There are a few unmaintained roads that have some fallen trees since the hurricane. Be aware of your surroundings as we had encounters with one rattlesnake and a cottonmouth on the side of the main trail.

Dry in the winter with mild mosquitos. Flat, easy hike to Pine Glades Lake. I saw nobody else on the trail.

This is a great flat bike trail in the Everglades through a pine forest. There are also several unmaintained roads that allow lots of variations. I did this on a winter weekend and saw no one. Many fast sections but a few solution holes.

Boy Scout Troop 599 hikes this trail and other connecting trails to stretch out a 20 miler from the the Scout Camp Everglades thru the pineland trail then the trail thru the marshland on the north side of the main road. Then back along the main road to the entrance of the Long Key campground back to the scout camp. Trail map available at entrance to Park.
