This place is peaceful and beautiful. You always see something but even if you didn't, the boardwalk trail is so nice with it's flora and fauna. My sons and I have been going for years and we have seen gators, owls, woodpeckers, tons of Egrets and Cranes, Anhingas...you get the idea, snakes, etc. Still hoping for an otter sighting but...

The wooden walkway takes visitors through pristine swampy terrain. At overlooks you may see alligators, turtles and water birds. Opt for a tour by one of the volunteers for a better understanding of this Florida environment.

Very beautiful and peaceful. They offer daily AM tours, Great spot to host a small picnic and walk. All hoteliers should recommend to visitors.

This is a pretty place to get away from all the traffic and noise. I rarely see any wildlife, except for the beautiful variety of birds. It is great to hike along the board walk and clear your head.

I live across the street from the slough and bike to it often. Guided walks and opportunities to going it alone are plentiful. See wildlife from the raised trails . At times their are tours to wade into the water and have a different experience.

We wanted to take the kids to see alligators etc... But didn't want tacky touristy. This was perfect. We saw lots of wildlife in a very peaceful setting, at our own pace. The walk is easy, you can push a stroller easily. I would highly recommend it!

Nice, quiet walk. That's all it us though. Elevated walkways through the mangroves. Can be very peaceful.
