Turner River Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This circular route weaves through delightful mangrove tunnels up Halfway Creek to Turner Lake and descends by the wider and more open Turner River to the bay east of Chokoloskee. There is a choice between two routes for the return to Everglades City, with one offering a visit to the historic Smallwood Store at Chokoloskee. This route includes very good mangrove tunnels.

From the park launching ramp, turn left along the shore past the dock until you reach the CR 29 bridge at the start of the causeway (0.5 mile). Pass under the bridge. There are three visible channels: to the right, left, and straight ahead. Go straight ahead. This will lead you into Halfway Creek in 0.5 mile. Halfway Creek passes buildings on your left. Eventually a sign on your right welcomes you to Everglades National Park."
