Mud Lake Loop Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This loop paddle inside Everglades National Park gives you a good taste of some open water, some confined water, and, more important, quietwater. Four miles of this loop is for hand-propelled craft only. There is a price to pay for this solitude, however: one leg of your loop requires a portage between waterways. I recommend this route for canoeists only—the narrow creeks, downed trees, and the portage make sea kayaking downright troublesome. The following description starts at Coot Bay Pond on Main Park Road. However, if you want to make a shorter loop, begin at the end of Bear Lake Road, making it a 4.8-mile adventure. Also be apprised that insects can be troublesome, especially on the Bear Lake Canoe Trail portion of this loop."
