A hiking and biking wilderness

Caloosahatchee Regional Park “is absolutely sick,” says Nailtravels. “People live here and don’t even know about it. There are over twenty miles of trails that curve through every type of tropical ecosystem. You rarely run into another person and when we camped there, if there were other folks, we didn’t see them.” The Regional Park has 768 acres of pine flatwoods, cypress swamps, oak hammocks, and scrub “perfect for hiking, camping, biking, horseback riding, fishing, and general relaxing.”

It provides “an outdoor escape along the Caloosahatchee River,” writes Florida Hikes. “The trail system, while a little tricky to follow in places, includes four short interconnecting trails that make up 3.4 miles of hiking,” and bikes are permitted on many of the trails. “The north side of the park is littered with trails for hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding,” says Nailtravels, “the south side has hiking trails, primitive campground, floating and fishing docks … a little bit of whatever you need.”
