Cypress Creek Trail is a shared use path from the Everglades to the sea in the southeastern Florida city of Tamarac. The trail lies just outside the Everglades' eastern border. For nearly 3 miles, the paved greenway parallels Southgate Boulevard on one side and C-14 Canal on the other. It initially ended near the Fern Forest Nature Center. However, there is a more recent eastern segment that completes the journey to the sea, following Atlantic Boulevard to Pompano Beach.
The only downside is that there is no direct connection between the two segments. From Fern Nature Center, trail users must use bike lanes on Lyons Road, to McNab for about 1.6 miles. The trail restarts at McNab.
The trail has good signage throughout. Note that the trail offers little shade, so you'll want to wear a hat, shades, and sunscreen
At the western trailhead, you can park at Tephford Park Playground (10301-10573 Southgate Blvd), or at the Gary B. Jones Park for People and Pups (8101 Southgate Blvd.) a little further away. On the greenway’s eastern end, there is parking right at the end of Atlantic Boulevard at Pompano Beach.
