Hickory Hammock Campground

Majestic live oaks on either side of the hiking trail offer a welcome as you enter the vintage panorama of Hickory Hammock. Marshes, patches of scrub and oak, hickory and cabbage palm hammocks await exploration. Remnants of the Istokpoga Slough provide cool relief to the landscape. With all this diversity, it’s easy to see why Hickory Hammock is a stop along the Great Florida Birding Trail and the Everglades Trail.

I am quoting for you the statement they made on their website (you can view it here).

Horseback riding is popular at Hickory Hammock and Bluff Hammock. An equestrian center with stables and non-potable water is available, along with primitive campsites for horseback riders. Ten miles of marked equestrian trails, interior dirt roads and fire breaks provide the rider with a varied landscape.

Bicycling enthusiasts will enjoy riding on a two-mile section of the old Sebring Grade on the south half of Hickory Hammock. Now grassed and canopied by overhanging tree limbs, the road connected Sebring and Basinger before U.S. Highway 98 was built in 1949. You can also enjoy bike riding on the interior “woods road,” an old ranch along the hammocks.
