“hike along 9 trails, bike a 3 mile path”

One of Florida´s oldest parks, opening to the public in 1931, this park was established when local citizens came together to promote the hammock as a candidate for national park status. During the Great Depression, just prior to World War II, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) developed additional park facilities and the beginnings of a botanical garden. Many visitors enjoy bicycling the scenic 3-mile loop drive or hiking along the park´s nine trails. An elevated boardwalk traverses an old-growth cypress swamp. Picnicking is another popular activity as are ranger-guided tours of the park. Highlands Hammock offers a full-facility campground, as well as a youth/group tent campground.  A recreation hall is available for rental, as are several picnic pavilions.

Good place for gator viewing. Don't forget the bug repellent.

This place was so peaceful and serene with plenty of shade whether your walking the paths or hiking or just staying in your car , they have little areas to pull over and look around. They also have a cafe...
Will definitely go again

This was really beautiful and the weather was perfect. I don’t think I’d enjoy it as much in the summer although there is plenty of shade, wasn’t too crowded at all. They have a little cafe as well.
