Its a nice trail, you can see a lot of the nature and some birds! Only negative point is that there are a lot of mosquitos, so take an anti-mosquito-spray with you!

This is such a great national park. You can easily see gators, turtles, owls, and lots of mosquitoes (ha!). The "hammocks " are higher elevation areas in the very flat and low park. The foliage is slightly different from other areas. A nice walk. About 4 miles for this walk, I believe.

The trail was nice if you like a walk through the forest as I do, without tripping over roots and rocks. The birds are really cool and the decking in nice shape. Make sure you use your bug spray for this walk though! Not much water and no gators seen, but lovely in it's own right.

We visit this trail every time we visit the Everglades. We have seen several critters along and under the trail. We saw our first Cottonmouth Water Moccasin on this trail this year.

Really not what we expected while in the Everglades. A very pretty trail with huge beautiful trees, it was a pleasant short walk. Apparently, there are owls there but we didn't see any. Of course, that's not unexpected - they're hard to see anyway. Lots of cool little lizards and magnificent mahogany trees. Well worth the 20 minutes or so... More

This trail is great and goes through one of the most unique areas of the park. We really enjoyed all the informative signs along the way, too.

An easy hike with some shade. Saw a Barred Owl sitting at eye level right off the trail. Beautiful, rich vegetation.

We loved this stop. The trail was a boardwalk through a forest that was very different than what we would expect in this area. After a walk across a prairie, you end up on the hammock (woods) and it is so different than any other place in the park. Due to the weather, we got through here in 20 minutes,... More

There were two owlets that were fuzzy and fun to watch. Didn't see much else. Could have been the time of day.

Interesting stop on the drive to Flamingo. Really and unusually Hammock not usually seen in this area of the park. Quite and cool under the shade of the canopy. Not much is the way of wildlife but a Tropical Forrest in the midst of the River of Grass.
