When people ask us “where’s the best place to hike in Florida?” it’s tough to come up with a quick answer. Our state is so diverse, with 83 different types of habitats to explore.
We are always delighted to come across a new “wow” moment when visiting a trail. If we return and feel the same, it’s on our scenic hikes list. But that list itself is pretty long, so we narrowed it down even more.
Top Trails in Florida
In addition to the trails listed above, we have a list of Top Ten Trail Destinations for planning your next trip. These are not individual trails that you can tackle all at once, but major trail systems and large parks and preserves throughout Florida which have many different trails in them. Some can be tackled on a bicycle, and some offer paddling trails as well.
