Even in the wet season this trail is excellent. Lots of wildlife including gators. It's only a relatively short boardwalk but well worth it. Great views.

The boardwalk was nice. Apparently there are usually a lot of animals out. We didn't see any but it was midday, hot, and September. Not a good time or temp to see things.

An excellent easy trail that everyone and anyone can do. It gave us the perfect introduction we were seeking for the everglades on limited time, before we did a couple more stops It took about 30 minutes on an easy stroll on a concrete then mostly raised wooden boardwalk, and we saw a good mix of wildlife including alligators, turtles,...

We saw so many different kinds of wildlife from crocodiles, to packs of vultures, turtles, fish, herons, and many other birds. It was really interesting to watch how the animals interacted with each other too. It was very peaceful and I would love to visit again one day. There was a short easy easy trail as well, which had some... More

This is a short, quarter mile, trail that the whole family can enjoy. Mainly paved with a nice boardwalk. We saw lubber grasshoppers, weird snails, alligators, herons, egrets and anhingas. The boardwalk takes you through the marsh and then opens up to large pond where you'll see alligators and anhigas swimming underneath the water. Despite the short distance, there was... More

Nice wooden boardwalk that loops the lake. Not long though. You'll take about 30 min to do the loop. We did see 3 alligators while walking. Bring insect repellent. It's a must. And some sun block...There's also a little shop and tourist office with clean bathrooms.

It is ver y nice to see the Park on this side. We were there on Labour Day at 4 p.m. there weren't many people. But also only one alligator, who let us seeing it. So it was nice, but an adventure with an airboat is much better to see more alligators. Maybe it would be better in the morning.... More

Great walk to understand complexity and beauty of the Everglades. Saw Alligators up close along with other birds and insects. Fantastic scenery and very easily accessible.
