Florida National Scenic Trail, FL
The Florida National Scenic Trail is a 1,300-mile behemoth that extends from the edge of the Everglades to Pensacola, passing through every habitat and ecosystem in the state. The south’s cypress swamps and grass wetlands are full of endangered birds, alligators, and the elusive Florida panther. Eventually, the trail hits the hardwood forests and freshwater springs in the north, and then rewards you with white sand beaches at the trail’s terminus in the panhandle. The most scenic stretch is in The Ocala National Forest above Orlando, or “the Big Scrub,” as it’s affectionately known. This 75-mile leg passes through longleaf pine forests and plunges into cypress and gum swamps, where many of the wettest areas are helpfully spanned by boardwalks.
