Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Pa-Hay-Okee Overlook Trail is a short semicircle that uses an elevated boardwalk leading to a high observation platform with a good view of the immensity of the Glade’s saw grass prairie. For as far as you can see, there is nothing but a sea of grass punctuated with scattered, island-like palm hammocks.

Saw grass, one of the oldest plant species in the world, richly deserves its name. But it’s better to learn that by sight than from touch. Each grass blade has tiny sharp teeth that discourage animals from grazing on it and help trap water during the dry season. On foggy nights the dew will condense on the plant’s teeth and roll down the V-shaped midrib to the roots."
