The Pineland Trail is a short half mile one-way hike, located about seven miles from the main park entrance. The trail offers examples of lush Caribbean pine, which is native to the Everglades. The pines are abundant on the limestone keys. Along this trail, you’ll also see saw palmettos and wildflowers. This trail has one of the highest elevations within the national park, about seven feet above sea level.
Eventually, the pines in this area will become a part of the hammock. This trail is handicapped accessible; though narrow and uneven in places where roots have pushed the pavement up.
Drive west on County Road 9336. The trailhead is located seven miles from the main park entrance (Main Park Road).
