Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Until recently, the 26,400-acre Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge had been as hard to enter as Fort Knox. Established in 1989 and located 20 miles east of Naples, the refuge has understandably guarded its property closely. So few of Florida’s large cats remain in the wild—estimated between sixty to one hundred adults statewide— the refuge was crucial for them to continue to follow their secretive ways.

Comprising 5,000 acres of woodland and 11,400 acres of mixed swamp and prairie, borders of the refuge near highway traffic have high wire fences that rival those of some state prisons. But the fence is not to keep out the public; it’s to prevent the great cats from crossing a busy highway and becoming another accident statistic, a too frequent occurrence in the past."
