CREW TRAILS ARE OPEN!
Effective April 29, 2020.
Please continue to practice social distancing while visiting our CREW trails.
Bird Rookery Swamp: The entire 12-mile loop is clearly marked. Alligators will warm themselves on the trail. Please do not attempt to force them to move when you pass.
CREW Marsh Trails: All of the trails are clear. Grass along the trail is short.
Cypress Dome Trails: All trails open. The Wild Coffee Trail is clear and freshly marked along the Green and Yellow Trails. The crossing to Caracara Prairie Preserve is under water again and relatively wide and deep. Be aware that alligators can be found in this canal and along the White Trail.
Flint Pen Strand Trails: The first trail opened Nov. 30, 2018. The trail is narrow and winding with some sand and roots/rocks. The trail is now accumulating water in places with remaining patches of sugar-sand.
Prescribed burns and shredding will continue through the rainy season. For more information, please read through this article from the South Florida Water Management District: sfwmd prescribed burn.pdf.
