The Southern Glades Trail lies on the outskirts of the city of Florida City, on Florida's southeastern tip, and along the eastern border of Everglades National Park. For 13 miles, it follows the C-111 canal; on its northern end, the trail parallels the west side of the canal, but switches to the eastern side of the canal for its southern half.
The trail runs through a quiet, state-owned wildlife area down to Manatee Bay. Along the way, you're likely to spot deer, alligators, snakes, and many kinds of birds. The pathway has a rough gravel surface, so mountain bikes or hybrids are recommended. Horses are also allowed. Note that you won't find restrooms or water along the way, so come prepared for your journey.
