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

What we liked best about this trail was what it didn't have: a lot of visitors. There was a long boardwalk to one of the tree islands that afforded long distance views of expansive glades. The walk around the hammock had a few informational signs that provided needed detail to appreciate the tangled flora. The red-tinted mahogany was majestic and... More

We enjoyed seeing one of the largest mahogany trees in the US along this walk. Mosquitos were pesky (even in April) so use repellent. Easy walk with a boardwalk.

This trail and info center was one of many in the southern glades. Worth your time if to only understand the types of hammocks and the reason for their variety.

This is a must-do walk. We never saw mahogany trees growing before. One housed a great horned owl nest with twin owlets. Mom sat on a branch not far away. Also, the red-trunked gumbo trees fascinated us. We kept well away from the poison wood trees as per warning signs--they are poison!

We learned so much from this walk. Our ranger (can't remember hear name, she is from Missouri) was so passionate and inspirational. She took a subject that could have been boring and made it interesting. Thank you NPS!

This trail provides a different view of the park than other areas. Boardwalk, accessible trail through a hammock. Good way to view the different types of vegetation given most hammocks are inaccessible.

Interesting trail into a hammock which provides a great example of the dramatic changes in plants and habitat provided by just a small increase in elevation. Fun and interesting hike.
