Mornings or evenings are better to catch birds, but my itinerary put me more at middle to late afternoon by the time I arrived to check out this anticipated ecosystem. Since the Everglades is pretty darn flat, the subtle elevation change means a distinct yet interrelated ecosystem! I was looking forward to seeing the largest living mahogany tree in the... More

This is a beautiful look at an amazing place! If a biologist were to recreate a diorama in a museum of Jurassic Park ( the movie) or the wild Amazon, they would copy this place. Mosquitos can get bad but worth it!

This walk takes maybe 15 min if you walk briskly. It's cool under the trees and the mahogany trees are fascinating to see. Epiphytes are everywhere! Good plank walkway. I had bug spray on and was still bitten so take precautions if Mosquitos love you. Definitely worth the stop.

Wait until bird migration is under way. Sometimes it's hot, sometimes it's not. Be patient and go slow and observe. Sometimes owls can be found

This is a nice boardwalk trail through a mahogany hammock. There are some decent size trees in the hammock and was the most sought after (curious) trail for me.

We visited the eastern side of the Everglades National Forest. Wasn't real impressed; the park on the North side off the Tamiami Trail is a lot more fun. If you have the extra time, drive a little further and have a lot more fun.

The best time of the year to hike this boardwalk is during the cooler months, which is just what my wife and I did earlier this year. It's a relatively short, easy walk. The flora it passes through is interesting, to me anyway.

Short (0,5 mile), easy but really nice boardwalk, really worth to do, especially if you're more out to do shorter walks.

Note: be sure to have bug spray! It's a great and easy walk through the hammock. It's a boardwalk trail, that wheelchairs can take. The trees are incredible along this route. Don't rush and just enjoy the scenery

We traveled the extra 20 minutes from the Anhinga Trail and back specifically to do this walk and it probably was not worth it, unless we were going to do more things in the area. This walk is very shaded and there are a lot of mosquitos. Make sure you use bug spray! It was also a little creepy because... More
