- Anhinga Trail
Located in Homestead, FL – Anhinga Trail is a beautiful look into Everglades National Park. The hike is short and moderate, great for kids and family outings! It is a paved walk that will allow you to walk over the marshes, and if you’re lucky – you may get a glimpse of an alligator!
- Big Oak Trail
Located in Jasper, FL – Big Oak Trail is one of the most scenic trails that North Florida has to offer. The majority of the trail parallels two rivers, the Suwanne and the Withlacoochee! There are many sink holes along the trail, as well as large oak trees – one that is so large it takes 8 people connecting hands to wrap around the base!
- Black Rock Trail
Black Rock located in Jacksonville, FL – this trail is interesting as the area is almost desolate. However, within the park there are biking trails, hiking trails, and jogging trails that will take visitors to an incredibly unique shoreline! The beach is covered in twisted driftwood that makes a perfect spot for your kids to roam, climb, and balance!
- Blue Spring State Park
Blue Spring State Park is located in Orange City, FL – it’s a moderate trail with beautiful views of Florida wildlife – including manatees by the few dozen and alligators. This is a very scenic, moderate, hike that is definitely worth the entrance fee to the park.
