nine mile pond

Launch at 11am.  This is a great trip for beginners and advanced alike.  Here is a link to the everglades park description of the paddle.  http://www.nps.gov/ever/planyourvisit/upload/9-Mile-Pond-Canoe-Trail-2.pdf

The yearly pass is $25 now,  And if you bring your own boat I believe it is $3 more.  If you need a rental boat the fee is $25 for a single or $35 for a double.  I must hear from you in advance if you need a boat.  I bring them from my house to the park so I need advanced notice on how many to bring. 

Bring food and drinks.  Mosquito repelent.  Stop at the visitor center for a last minute bathroom break.  There are no facilities at 9 mile pond

      Awesome. Thanks for posting, John. It's a whole different perspective to see the trail from above. Note: the "hiccup" shown in the twin lake closer to the launch site is where we stopped to look at the monster gator.

    Last time I took this trip about a year ago I said it couldn't get any better. It got better. The weather was just right and a great group to paddle with, too.

    Thank you Miles for organizing this paddle, truly a River of Grass experience. Great to see old friends and new couldn't think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

    Another perfect day in the Everglades with old and new friends. The weather was as good as it gets, with a slight breeze pretty much keeping the mosquitoes at bay. Some of us got to see the resident monster gator (or croc, depending on who you talk to). Again, thanks Miles, for organizing this great trip and diligently watching over us.

    2 questions:

    1. Is it still possible to rent a kayak?

    2. How long does this trip take? I need to be somewhere on Saturday evening and was wondering what time I'd be back in Miami. Thank you.

    Yes, $3 entrance fee per kayak... That is not included in membership, or general entrance fee.
    And mosquitoes are STILL present. And so are the no-see-ums!

      I live close and still have mosquitoes. They are not so bad though. I don't think they are the reason to pass this up. They are not plentiful anymore. Just a few to remind us they're still here.

      For those who have not been to this park before, the park entry fee is $10 per vehicle (good for 7 consecutive days so you can go again on Sunday for free!), plus a launch fee of $3 per kayak. As Miles mentioned, the annual pass is $25, which is a good deal if you think you'll go to the park more than twice in a year.

    One of my favorites, but we will be in Pennsylvania. Snow, cold, ugh!! We'll miss you all. Lucas, Yes! We will do this again. January.

      December 15, 2013

  • Lucas G.

    Bummer I can't make the date. Please do this again. Thanks. Lucas
