Description

This swamp walk led by an experienced Naturalist will immerse you in the beauty and diversity of the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve the largest State Park in Florida.. For many visitors, a Friends of Fakahatchee Swamp Walk is the highlight of their Florida visit. Participants wade in cool water observing the native wildlife and plants in the Fakahatchee Strand. This is a long, at times strenuous walk into the heart of the Fakahatchee. Participants will be required to sign a standard release of liability form.

Swamp walkers are required to wear long pants and lace-up boots or sneakers (no waders or open-top shoes). A hat and long-sleeve shirt are also recommended. Bring water, snacks and bug repellent if you are sensitive. You can change into your dry clothes at the park's restroom for your return home.

Participants will drive their own vehicles following the Naturalist on Janes Scenic Drive for a slow six mile drive to the swamp walk location.
