Hell's Bay Chickee, Homestead, FL 33034

The Hell's Bay Canoe Trail runs through a complex mangrove ecosystem in the Everglades. So named because it was once considered “hell to get into, hell to get out of,” the trail takes paddlers through several small ponds and bays. It also passes two backcountry chickees and a ground site; camping is allowed with a backcountry permit. It takes approximately six to eight hours to explore the entire trail, which runs 5.5 miles one way. Parts of the trail can be buggy, so insect repellent is recommended in addition to sunscreen and water.
