Robert Frost could have used a local guide when he decided to take the road less traveled by, as he discovered only too late that it was patrolled by feral park rangers.

The Deal

$39 for one ticket to an EcoTrek (an $89 value)
$69 for two tickets to an EcoTrek (a $178 value)
$99 for four tickets to an EcoTrek (a $356 value)

  • Valid for one of the following EcoTreks:
  • Three- to four-hour Indian Field trek
  • Approximately three-hour hardwood-forest trek
  • Half-day (approximately four hours) bald-cypress trek<p>

Clad in comfy layers and armed with their own water and snacks, recreationists launch into EcoTreks by Rod’s Indian Field trek in a roomy replica of an Indian war canoe, which ferries them across Sweetwater Canal to a 4-mile mountain path navigable by bike or slip ‘n’ slide. As cyclists glide along the trail, they soak in views of Floridian marshes and rolling plains before piling into Rod’s modified kayaks for 2.5 miles. Airboats speed patrons back to original launch pads, allowing wind to rustle through hair and dislodge bits of play-doh from beards.

Patrons explore the hardwood forest via self-propelled vehicles, gliding down a scenic canal and watching butterflies flutter among colorful prairie flowers during the dry season. The forest’s behemoth oak trees tower over deer and wild hogs year-round, and breezes ripple across Willow Creek and a crystalline lake where Rod narrates the history of local Native Americans and the Old Union Railway. The longest loop, the bald-cypress tour, takes bikers across terrain smoother than the floor of a level-making factory and carries kayakers with the current while a guide spouts off history of the nearby headwaters.
