Hungryland Boardwalk and Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The 1.2-mile Hungryland Boardwalk and Trail provides a good, capsulated look of the massive 60,228-acre J.W. Corbett Wildlife Management Area. A natural path links to a series of boardwalks to pass through pine flatwoods, saw grass marsh, an oak/cabbage palm hammock, and a cypress swamp.

Along the trail you could see white-tailed deer or bobcats, river otters, raccoons, pileated woodpeckers, barred owls, screech owls, herons, egrets, and common yellowthroats. Interpretive signs mark the trail. The trail goes through an edge of Hungryland Slough (pronounced “slew”), a shallow basin of slow-moving water populated with cypress domes and open grassy meadows."

This is a very nice short hike for someone who wants to know what it's like inside a cypress swamp without getting wet. Nicely maintained boardwalk. Beautiful trees, ferns, moss, and air plants. Very peaceful and cool, especially early in the morning. To get there take Northlake BLVD West to Pratt Whitney Road north. PW road soon becomes unpaved. Stay on road for approx 2.5 miles looking for Everglades Youth Camp entrance on your left. There is a $6 per vehicle fee requested via honor system (an well worth it). Follow road into camp looking for Hungryland Boardwalk signs. You will take a left, following signs and come to a grassy area. Park in the grass and look for the trail head ahead and to the right. A spur to the Florida Trail also trail heads from the grassy area.
