The Florida Trail is a congressionally designated National Scenic Trail.  It is approximately 1,500-miles long, showcasing the biodiversity, history, and rich culture of Florida.  Its termini lie in Gulf Islands National Seashore to the North, and Big Cypress National Preserve to the South. It is one of 11 congressionally designated National Scenic Trails.
Using the trail as a general guide and avoiding coasts, beaches, theme parks, big cities, tourist attractions, college towns, resorts, kitsch and tourists, I discovered a different Florida on this project, one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Florida is like a great book with a flashy cover that very few people bother to read.
