Visit CREW

  • CREW Flint Pen Strand, CREW Bird Rookery Swamp, CREW Cypress Dome Trail, and CREW Marsh Trails are all open to the public from sunrise to sunset.
  • The railroad trestle bridge, at the far northern side of the CREW Bird Rookery Swamp Trail, is closed to pedestrian access until further notice – making the trail an out-and-back trail as opposed to a full loop. (as of 3/29/22)
  • Hunting takes place at two locations within CREW: The CREW Cypress Dome Trails and Caracara Prairie Preserve and outside of the trail system at CREW Flint Pen Strand. Click here: hunt dates.

The CREW Trust has worked diligently with the South Florida Water Management District and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to ensure public access and recreation opportunities on these public lands we call CREW.

There are exceptional recreational opportunities for people of all ages on over 36 miles of hiking trails, with more planned in the future. The CREW project now has four trail systems open to the public, two located off of Corkscrew Road (County Road 850), one off of Bonita Beach Road and one located off of Immokalee Road (see map above).
