Trail Town – Everglades City

Welcome to Everglades City.  Paddle the islands.  Bike the trails.  Hike in the Wilderness.  Take a picture & get the T-Shirt!


Welcome to Everglades City!  In January 2019, our town was designated as an official trail town by Florida’s Office of Greenways and Trails.  We were awarded this designation because of our proximity to the amazing paddling trails in the 10,000 islands, the biking trails in the adjacent parks, and the hiking trails in the wilderness that surrounds us.

Everglades City is a small island with a year-round population of 400 on the SW coast of Florida surrounded by Everglades National Park, Big Cypress Preserve and the Fakahatchee Strand State Park.  There are several other State and National Parks just a short drive away!

Whether you are interested in paddling, hiking, biking or birdwatching, there is something amazing for you to see here!  When you visit, plan to stay a few extra days so you can take advantage of the many unique things to do here.       

If you need trail maps, navigate to the paddling, hiking, or biking pages on our website and they are available for download!
