I really really liked the easy walk and the vast view of the prairie. The river of grass is beautiful and awesome. BUT...the observation tower now has the WORST view in the whole park. The trees have grown so you can't get the wow factor from up high- still good photo shots but it's just from board walk level. As... More

The Pay-hay-okee trail is a short 0.25 mile boardwalk that takes one to an over look of the Everglades and one can appreciate why it is called the river of grass. This is an excellent sunset location with good photographic opportunities.

This short trail gives a good perspective on how vast the Everglades prairies are. Look for Sandhill Cranes which are often seen from this trail.

short boardwalk trail - saw a bald eagles nest and some baby alligators - they make a chirping cound like baby birds.

Second only to Shark Valley for wildlife viewing. Kinda crowded though. Do not tease the native dwellers..they will bite!

A great trail to see the grass marshland with bald cypress. The trail is short and offers great photo opportunity.

Wow ... this was a short boardwalk, not a lot of wildlife, just the opportunity to see what looks like a huge, neverending prairie, but is actually a flowing river. Just stand still and listen to the quiet, the sound of the wind and the birds ... really moving experience that allows you to get in touch with what the... More

One of my 3 favorite spots from the Coe Visitors' Center entrance (the birds, turtles and alligators along Anhinga Trail and the birds at Mrazek Pond are the others). The panoramic views are just amazing from the top, it's wonderfully peaceful, and the lower boardwalk gets you close to the vegetation that makes up this wonderful part of the Everglades.... More
