Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park

Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park

A former site of a massive logging operation is now the largest state park in Florida, Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park and it is located in Copeland Florida. Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park curates an abundant amount of animal and plant species that can not be found anywhere else in the United States. The beauty of the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park are the divisions within the park. It is divided into four areas, Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk, East River, Jones Grade Lakes, and Jane's Memorial Scenic Drive. Along with the four main sections of the park it has a hiking trail and a biking trail as well. Once you take a walk within the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk, you get led into the heart of the largest royal palm and bald cypress swamp in the world, making Fakahatchee State Park a park like no other.
