Loop Road

Loop Rd, FL

Info pratiche

Provenendo da Miami, la Loop Road si dirama da Tamiami Trail (US 41) alla Forty Mile Bend / Tamiami Ranger Station e si unisce nuovamente a Tamiami Trail alla stazione di Monroe. Tieni d'occhio il segno: non è particolarmente ben segnalato. Assicurati che la strada sia percorribile prima di iniziare la tua avventura poiché la strada può allagare durante la stagione degli uragani. Assicurati di usare cautela durante la guida (alligatori e altri animali selvatici possono essere sulla strada) e fai attenzione quando lasci il tuo veicolo.

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.
