Bike Among the Big Cypresses
Are you looking to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, smells, and lure of the Big Cypress Institute? Experience the Big Cypress Institute with an NPS Ranger or Institute Naturalist on a biking tour through the unique habitats that make up this amazing area!
You’ll hear the calls of birds and wildlife as you feel the cool air in the cypress trees give way to the warm humid air that hangs over the prairie. Biking in Big Cypress, you’ll ride where panthers have passed looking for prey, using your own energy to fuel the experience, leaving only a thin tire track where you have been! Just don’t forget your water and snacks!
These interpretive bike rides are not races or tests of endurance, so be prepared for regular stops to discuss the flora, fauna and the challenges and mystery of Big Cypress!
Bring your own bicycle or rent one for an additional cost of $20.
