Overview


The definitive guide to more than 500 hiking trails in Florida that no enthusiast will want to be without.
 
Hikers in the Sunshine State may find themselves less than elevationally challenged, but what Florida trails lack in altitude, they make up for in habitat diversity. More than 80 different natural communities range across the state, from tropical gumbo limbo forests to open prairies and sand dunes, and a single brief hike can encompass any number of these environments.
Avid hiker and author Sandra Friend presents the complete guide to over 500 hiking trails spread across Florida. These trails cover 2,273 miles, including portions of the 1,400-mile Florida Trail, a designated National Scenic Trail that is the state‚Äôs premier hiking destination. For each trail, a concise one-page listing describes trek highlights and provides pertinent information on trail length, logistics, sources of additional maps, and directions to the trailhead (with GPS coordinates for many). Organized by region for immediately accessible information, this guide is a user-friendly trail companion for beginners and advanced hikers alike.
