Event Details

Ghost Rider Tram Tours 

         You don’t have to get your feet wet or drive your car down Janes Scenic Drive to see the wonders of the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. The  “Ghost Rider” tram, named in honor of the famous Ghost Orchid found in the park, lets you look at wildlife and plants without concentrating on the road. The park is home to more orchid species than any other place on the North American continent.   The Preserve is also a haven for diverse wildlife and migratory birds.

         An experienced guide leads each 2 1/2 hour tram tour and points out interesting aspects of the park. The tour includes a 15 min. walk down an old logging path to see numerous air plants, a variety of ferns, and seasonally blooming orchids.  The path is high and dry, but hikers need to wear closed shoes. The 20-passenger tram is wheelchair accessible and some seats face backwards.  Participants will be required to sign a standard release of liability form.

This is an outdoor event, so please dress appropriately for the weather.  Please wear secure, closed toe shoes for brief walks at tram stops.

ARRIVE PROMPTLY, the tram leaves at 10 a.m. from the ranger station at 137 Coastline Drive off of Janes Scenic Drive, Janes Scenic drive is ONLY acessible via SR 29 ( between I-75 and US 41) DO NOT rely on incorrect GPS information providing other routes to access Jane Scenic dirve in Copeland.
