Big Cypress remains closed between Oasis and I-75 due to wildfires.
Hikers report finding no water at all between Oasis up through 7 Mile Camp. If the trail does reopen, use caution and carry an abundance of water if you head into the swamp, even on a day hike. Alligators and other wildlife will cluster around what little water remains during the dry season. The wet season begins when daily summer rains start.
To get a handle on probable water levels, see the current comparision between current outflow (blue line) vs. median daily statistic at the water gauges located EAST and WEST of the Florida Trail at Oasis.
