Turner River from Tamiami Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Turner River is an easy trip leading from the Tamiami Trail (US 41) to the town of Everglades City. A freshwater Everglades stream leads to sheltered tidal water. This is a great trip for seeing birds. The descent, although there is scarcely a gradient, begins on freshwater and ends in a saltwater estuary. You will pass a significant cluster of Calusa Indian shell mounds.

Launch at the northwest (upstream) side of Tamiami Trail at a small parking area, 0.5 mile west from SR 839, the Turner canal, and H. P. Williams Park. From the launch ramp a narrow channel parallels the road east to join the Turner River beside a bridge. Pass under the bridge. The vegetation is saw grass and reeds, typical of the freshwater Everglades."
