Hike the Morris Bridge Park Loop

Morris Bridge

Who knew a swamp could be so alluring? If you're not convinced see the beauty for yourself on the Morris Bridge Trail, and keep your eyes peeled for the powerful reptiles that patrol the waters.

The Morris Bridge Trail is a 14.4 mile loop of endless swampy intrigue. Experience deep Florida Nature from well-kept trails. Keep your eyes and ears alert for wildlife--you may even spot an alligator! You will be sharing the trail with hikers, runners, cyclists, and equestrians, so be prepared to keep right. If you plan to do the whole loop, be sure to bring water and snacks, though you can certainly hike just as much out and back as is suitable for you! Trail is only accessible October-May.

Birds And Gators!

Lots of wildlife even if you just stick to the boardwalks for the most part. We saw many lovely birds including several herons, ibis, and a bittern. We also saw at least three sunning gators.
