Pinelands Loop Trail

Everglades National Park

The .4 miles Pinelands Trail showcases one of the park?s most diverse and resilient habitats. Once extending up the Atlantic coast of Florida, the Slash Pine forests of the Everglades now represent virtually all that is left of this habitat. As the Miami area became more populated, heavy logging due to demand for the durable and hard pine wood devastated these once-thriving forests. Today, the 20,000 acres of Everglades pineland forest is now the most endangered pine community in North America.
