This section of the FT traverses some of the most rugged terrain in Florida, the Big Cypress National Preserve. The hiking will be challenging; wet feet and slogging through water up to your knees are guaranteed. The sun can be brutal in open areas. And following the orange blazes of the often-faint trail takes a keen eye and patience. Normally, backpackers are looking for water to go with some level ground. Here, backpackers are looking for dry ground to go along with their water. A hike through the Big Cypress will help you understand why this area is one of the last strongholds of the Florida panther. Be prepared for serious backcountry hiking when entering the Big Cypress. Some folks who get back here drive “swamp buggies.” These contraptions look like Jeeps on steroids, with their oversized tires and elevated frames. They make wide muddy paths, which the FT crosses. But traversing the Big Cypress via foot power will give you a unique experience, which is simply unlike hiking anywhere else in the United States.
