We were fortunate to visit on a day that was in the 60's with a little breeze so as not to be bothered by mosquitos -- since we heard they could be a real problem here. Right... read more

My husband and I are from TN and are used to hiking in the Smokies. The flora and fauna we saw on this short trip were incredibly different than what we're used to seeing. It was a great introduction to this beautiful park. Today was VERY windy, so the only wildlife we experienced were birds. Overall, a great walk.

We were fortunate to visit on a day that was in the 60's with a little breeze so as not to be bothered by mosquitos -- since we heard they could be a real problem here. Right away we saw a Great Blue Heron standing close by in the water. Next we spotted a turtle swimming as well as an... More

It's a short drive from the park entrance. It's a nice short trail with lots of wildlife. We spotted allegators, few birds and turtles. Gumbo Lambo trail also starts from here which is a short trail through a small forest. If you want to spot wildlife at everglades this is the place to start. Overall we liked it and took... More

Easy trail to navigate and get a good look at the Everglades up close and personal. Take in the scenery that offers alligators, birds and plenty of vegetation. In January, the day was cool, sunny and bug-free. Perfect.

This Trail is definitely good for visit, it is a 30 mins to 1 hours walk, you can see alligator and birds. If u just want to see the alligator in a completely safe distance, go there. However, it is in the Park, you need to pay $20 (valid for 7 days) per vehicle for visit.

Prior to our kayak trip on Nine Mile Pond we did a quick tour of Annihinga trail. The weather was perfect and it was a easy walk on the boardwalk. It's great for birdwatching. We didn't see a lot of gators due to the massive amount of rain we have had. Typically the gators will come in during the usually... More

We walked both walking paths and really enjoyed seeing all the different vegetation and learning about the area. On the Anhinga Trail we saw a lot of birds, some gators, and a snake. It was a good, easy walking path.
