The Florida Trail

Panhandle Region

Florida’s Panhandle offers beautiful hiking experiences along the Gulf of Mexico.

Here visitors can be treated to pine-fringed estuaries and long walks along the sparkling sands. The panhandle is known for its “hills,” where hikers are challenged to transverse steep ravines, along narrow footpaths. Florida’s high point is here, as are the highest points on the Florida Trail.

As a strike contrast, low boggy areas and seepage slopes are host to a colorful assortment of wildflowers, including terrestrial orchids and pitcher plants.
