Bird Rookery Swamp: The entire 12-mile loop is open. Alligators will warm themselves on the trail. Please be kind and give them space 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 with some standing water. The crossing to Caracara Prairie Preserve is passable if you don’t mind some mud and a little water. Caracara is mostly dry.
Flint Pen Strand Trails: The first trail opened Nov. 30, 2018. The trail is narrow and winding with some sand and roots/rocks. Most of the trail is dry with small patches of mud and water.
Prescribed burns and shredding will continue throughout the winter months. For more information, please read through this article from the South Florida Water Management District: sfwmd prescribed burn.pdf
