I would suggest visiting this part of the park during a cooler time of the year. There's absolutely no way to survive with the bugs and mosquitos. It honestly doesn't look that impressive anyway and it's not worth the torture.

As well as other reviewers, I only walked one minute, before running back to the car, due to mosquitoes. What's incredible to me is, only my face and arms were not covered by clothes; and I had abundantly sprayed them with 50% DEET. No way: mosquitoes attacked my face in large numbers, ignoring the repellent and even my slamming palms.... More

The bugs were excited that we decided to walk the trail. They did not have to go far for lunch! We were not afraid, we were birdwatching, on the hunt for the Mangrove Cuckoo, no luck! But we did get catbird, Cardinal, common yellow throat warbler, the Palm warbler, the white-eyed vireo, and the great crested flycatcher. Would have stayed... More

This trail was too buggy to walk on. We started and turned around almost immediately and headed back. The ranger also admitted to me there really isn't much to see at the end of the trail

If you're going to check out this part of the park, take a boat. My wife and I tried walking the trail and didn't last 20 minutes before we turned back. The mosquitoes are vicious! The 20 minutes we did walk our arms were constantly flailing trying to keep the bugs off. We had bug spray on, but it was... More

This area is amazing, we kayaked there, and you can see where the water just stands completely still like a mirror and the sky is reflected beautifully, as well as the shadows of all the birds, we even saw a crocodile there. Really cool place.

Compadres met at Mrazek Pond recommended Snake Bight Trail. The shady entrance welcomed me but only after about 20-30 minutes on the trail the vicious bugs forced me to turn back. I had already sprayed myself down at the trail entrance with Deep Woods Off with 25% DEET but it was not enough to deter the armies of Everglades biting... More

An amazing place for shore and wading birds. Best time to visit is after fall migration (winter) and preferably, at low tide, when the mud flats are exposed. Expect 500+ White Pelicans, hundreds, (if not thousands) of Least, Western, and Semipalmated Sandpipers, Willets, Avocets, Greater & Lesser Yellowlegs, Black-necked Stilts, Black-bellied and Semipalmated Plovers, Dunlin, Marbled Godwits, and Ruddy Turnstones....

Took the Snake Bight trail out to the viewing area boardwalk and it was a nice walk and a nice view of Snake Bight. Some of the trail is a bit grown in and we encountered a little dampness near the end of the trail (muddy) but overall the most passable trail we encountered in the Flamingo area. The side... More

We tried to walk this trail, but were attacked by hundreds of mosquitoes (even through our clothes), so we quickly gave up our attempt to reach even the begin of the walk (the first part is really boring, don't know what the rest of the walk brings).
