Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge

This refuge is in Southwest Florida at the corner of I-75 (Alligator Alley) and 29 in Big Cypress Basin, about 20 miles east of Naples. There are wildlife crossings beneath the adjacent highways allowing animals to access the refuge. When you pull in there’s a small parking lot and a gate. Go through the gate to access the trails.

We did not see much wildlife here. There was a giant, bloody rat on the trail though, so something was nearby. The trail is about 1.5 miles, not a day trip destination in itself but is an easy hike if passing through Big Cypress. Animals get wild out there so you never know what you might see. This is my dad discovering stuff and documenting it on film.
