The Black River Cypress Preserve boasts miles of trails and boardwalks that weave between upland and bottomland ecosystems. The Swampside Trail is a flat, four-mile, out-and-back trail. Hikers can add to their experience by following old logging roads that loop around the perimeter of the property. 

The Peninsula Tract offers a more primitive riverside trail along a high bluff and is best suited for hiking, not biking. 

Choose to explore the trail system on your own or schedule a guided tour with a naturalist, bird expert, or botanist.
