Each Everglades Trail site has a kiosk which provides information
on the ecosystem and public use opportunities.

The Everglades Trail is a project initiated by Marvin and Lee Cook/Wilderness Graphics, Inc., the Florida Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, and the Friends of Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. The Trail was introduced by U.S. Senator Bob Graham and created with the support of Office of Greenways and Trails, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida Department of Transportation Environmental Management Office, with the assistance of Visit Florida and participation of local, state, and federal agencies.

You may find more information to explore the Everglades and Big Cypress Swamp on the web. These are a few places to start your adventure....
