Exploring trails in passive backcountry areas like high population parks seems like an interesting place to explore for the newbie backcountry hiker. We live in South Florida and looking to try hiking and kayaking. Any suggestions?

I spent countless hours in the everglades when I was growing up. Perfect for canoeing and kayaking adventures imo.

Thanks, Rambler. I'm sure you've got a few nice stories to tell. We're looking to pick up our first kayak.  It will make a nice addition to our other weekend pastime--golf.

there is one decent trail in the everglades... Coastal Prairie Trail.  can get a bit moist on the trail, but the beach at the end is very nice... I stayed there for 2 days and did nothing.. was awesome!

Thanks, Coastal Prairie Trail looks worth a trip.  I have been recently visiting  Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach - great for photography and getting familiar with the native habitat and animals.
