Excellent island hike

Boardwalk through a rainforest-like ecosystem. Easy, dry walk but potential for bugs. Worth a stop off the main road.

Be sure to stop and take a stroll through the trees. Be sure to bring bug spray! We saw lots of lizards and wildlife.

This is a 1/2 mile boardwalk trail through a mahogany tree hammock inside Everglades National Park (have to pay park entrance fees to access it). Home of the largest mahogany tree in the U.S. It is located on the main park road about halfway between the entrance and Flamingo, and the trailhead is well-signed. The boardwalk is mostly level and... More

A nice stop midway on the main access road. Easy parking. Nice 0.4 mile boardwalk across sawgrass and around the hammock. Good signage. Very cool to see the mahogany trees, much larger and taller than others in the park. Dense foliage. We saw a large owl that sat by for many photos. There was a slight breeze, so we had... More

Can be done in 20minutes or stay longer enjoying the details. Winter will generally attract wildlife due to the dry season and migrations of wildlife. But this year it's rained a lot so the animals were spread out

We were driving from the entrance at Ernest Coe Visitor Center to the Flamingo Visitor Center which is about 38 miles. The Mahogany Hammock is about half the distance. It was a nice short walk and a great way to stretch our legs. There was a boardwalk for the entire distance and a nice level parking lot.

This is a good hike that won't take long in and out. The boardwalk takes you to an elevated overlook in the trees. We saw a lot of fish, birds and plants of course. No gators seen here, the water is not deep enough. But, it is nice in the shade on a hot day. The guide map said 20... More

It should be a nice and easy walk inside the forest. But we started to run soon after we entered it since we were chased by hundreds of mosquitos. Try to be mosquitos-proof before your trip.

The mahogany hammock is a short walk from the parking area and it is so unique. It does not take a lot of time or effort. There is a boardwalk around the hammock and it is a natural marvel.
