Cypress Swamp Boardwalk Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"South Florida has many nature boardwalks, but to me Cypress Swamp Boardwalk is one of the most scenic as well as one of the best for spotting wildlife. What makes this cypress swamp so special is the heavy concentration of giant leather ferns, the largest fern in North America.

Growing up to 14 feet tall, they do deserve their “leather” name. Examine the underside of a fertile frond: The rust-brown spores covering the underside do indeed look like suede leather. Alligators are often out sunning in the ponds in front of the Cypress Swamp Boardwalk at the visitor center."
