Some memorable paddling adventures can be found where Big Cypress National Preserve and Everglades National Park share a common border. These two units of the National Park Service maintain natural areas for their wondrous and divergent resources: one is a flooded upland and a grand forest, and the other is the world-famous yet still secretive wetland of grassy glades. The parks share the water as it casually flows to the Gulf of Mexico over the nearly flat landscape. The "paddling season". . . when the water levels drop . . . is from November through March when temperatures and bugs are tolerable. However, for the adventurous, trails are accessible year-round.
