Take a Stroll on the Pa-Hay-Okee Overlook Trail

0.2 miles  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

Boardwalk, mangroves, everglades, lookout tower, and wildlife. What more could you want? Short, easy, and highly rewarding hike that is ideal for just about anyone.

Park at the trailhead and hop onto the boardwalk trail. Its very short--just 0.2 miles, so take your time to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. Partway through the hike there is a lookout tower which is great for getting a high vantage point to enjoy the landscape from.

Be aware of wildlife around you and respectful of the space you share with them.

Overall rating: 

Very serene in nature

I did this nearly 10 years ago and still remember it. Definitely worth a stop if you're traveling in the area as there is much wildlife and flora to see.

This is a great place to be around sunset. Also saw some barred owls last time I was there.
