Following Hurricane Irma, park cleanup has now been completed and all areas of the park are now open for public use including the scenic Loop Road which runs through a magnificant old growth hammock.  Visitors may drive the Loop, park at the trailheads, and hike all of the nature trails with the exception of the Cypress Swamp Trail.  Upcoming special events that are being held this month include the 32nd Annual Civilian Conservation Corps Festival on November 11 and the 25th Annual Turkey Trot 5K Run/Walk.  The Hammock Inn Concession is open daily from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. For more information, please call the Hammock Inn at (863) 402-0061 or the Ranger Station at (863) 386-6094 and press 0 to speak directly with a Ranger.
