Route en boucle

Loop Rd, FL

Infos pratiques

Venant de Miami, le Loop Road bifurque de Tamiami Trail (US 41) à la Forty Mile Bend / Tamiami Ranger Station et rejoint à nouveau Tamiami Trail à la station Monroe. Gardez un œil sur le signe - il n'est pas particulièrement bien marqué. Assurez-vous que la route est navigable avant de commencer votre aventure car la route peut être inondée pendant la saison des ouragans. Soyez prudent lorsque vous conduisez (les alligators et autres animaux sauvages peuvent être sur la route) et soyez prudent lorsque vous quittez votre véhicule.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Take the Loop Road if you want to get off the main highway and into the Everglades.
  • Drive slow and watch for wildlife—it’s not uncommon to encounter alligators crossing the road.
  • Check the road conditions before starting out, it can be impassable during rainstorms.
  • In dry conditions, the road can be navigated in a 2-wheel-drive car but 4WD is advised if the road is wet.

How to Get There

The Loop Road begins at the former Monroe Station (it is now burned to the ground but the sign still exists), 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) west of Oasis Visitor Center and 15 miles (24 kilometers) east of the Big Cypress Swamp Welcome Center. Follow the road until it reconnects with the Tamiami Trail (US 41) 40 miles (64 kilometers) west of Miami at the 40-Mile Bend Check Station.

When to Get There

It is easiest to travel the road when it is not raining, so your best shot is to visit during Florida’s dry, cool season from November to March. In the summer, parts of the road can be underwater and completely impassable.

Wildcard

Why Visit Big Cypress National Preserve Bordering Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve is a protected swampland without the same restrictions as the national park itself. This more lenient federal designation means that the preserve welcomes a diverse array of outdoor recreation activities. You can drive off-road vehicles, see the swamp from an airboat tour, and even hunt within the preserve.
