Myakka River State Park Day Hike
December 16 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am
Join us on a hike in Myakka River State Park!
This 5-mile loop hike will take you through several of Florida’s diverse ecosystems such as pine flat woods, prairies and hardwood hammocks. The sun will be rising, so we will be looking and listening for the marvelous sights and sounds in the woods! Birds awaking, crickets and frogs croaking and chirping, mystery animals calling in the distance. We will take a leisurely pace but avoid stopping so that the mosquitoes remain a minor nuisance. This is a back-country trail that has some uneven terrain and narrow paths.
**Park admission is not included in the guided hike fee. The park entrance fees are as follows: $4 per car with a single occupant or $6 per car with 2 – 8 occupants. Carpooling or use of State Park Annual Passes is encouraged!**
