"This 0.4-mile trail loops through a forest of slash pines (also called Caribbean or Dade County pine), the only pine species found in the Glades. They grow in a karst landscape known as a rocklands environment. Soft Miami limestone provides the uneven foundation, pocked with numerous solution holes where hard, frequent rains have dissolved the porous rock. These trees are able to grow here by setting their roots on a key, a Florida term for both hammocks and pinelands where the limestone rock rises above the surrounding wetlands. The pinelands have some of the highest and driest elevation in the park: 3 to 7 feet above sea level."
