BIKING LONG PINE TREE NATURE TRAIL Everglades National Park, Florida

Hiking Team: Dave Miller, Rosie Miller

Date: November 8, 2021

This trail was located on the east side (Homestead Entrance) of the park and is a dirt/natural trail on islands of higher ground surrounded by open wet prairies and dotted with dense strands of pine and other hardwood trees and palmetto shrubs. My mountain bike was perfect for this semi-rough trail.  Sadly, we biked about 2 miles but had to stop because the trail was flooded, then added another 4 miles on paved roads. Rosie was worried about an alligator crawling out of the dense bush or a Florida panther attacking at any time. I later posed with a sculpture of a panther at the visitor center.
