Hike the Ancient Hammock Trail

Florida Ancient Hammock Trailhead

Added by The Outbound Collective

Hike beneath the beautiful canopy of a virgin forest.

This short, intermediate loop passes beneath huge and ancient trees, and is also a good spot for birding. At the T-intersection in the trail, turn left.

Beautiful State Park!

Highlands Hammock is a gorgeous state park. We camped for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The large trees are spectacular and we loved looking at the wildlife. This trail, in particular was very stunning!
