We walked this trail twice during our 3 days visiting the park. The first day it was evening and we saw a large alligator completely out of the water right by the visitor center and a couple others. The other day it was very hot...More
We only had an hour to spend in the park and we chose to do this trail. We saw 5 alligators and several birds on this trail. The first alligator was sun bathing right at the start of the trail. It’s so neat to see...More
we had a couple of days visiting the Everglades (allowing us to do most of the National Park Trails in the south and the Shark Valley cycle trail). Of all of them, the Anhinga Trail was our favourite. Keep an eye out for soft shell...More
Unfortunately I saw very little wildlife (2 huge grasshoppers, a butterfly and some fish) the walk was very pleasant. I'm sure that considerable rain over the last week contributed to the lack of wildlife sightings. I would definitely do this again!
Lucky enough to see 2 Alligators in really clear water from a close...but safe position. It can take a while to find one, they seem to camoflage themselves very well indeed. We as a family really enjoyed the trail, its clean, well maintained. There are...More

There is basically only one entrance to Everglades. The park is expensive ,the Anhinga trail is near the entrance near Homestead you might not want to drive further into park. The big cypress preserve has a free visitor center and birds and alligators. You will have to check google maps if the drive is worth saving the Everglades park entrance. If your a senior citizen and a us resident and plan to see lots of parks in your lifetime a senior pass if good value and last until you die. A yearly pass is only good for 12 months and covers non residents and non seniors
Hi, We are flying into Miami at about 2 pm, renting a car and driving to Marathon. We would like to do a quick stop and explore Anhinga Trail on the way. Do we have enough time for that if we get there around 4 pm? When does it get dark? Thank you.

Hi! My husband and I are flying to Miami on February 13th and plan on going to the Everglades and then driving to New Smyrna to visit relatives. I am not sure how much time to plan on staying in Everglades National Park. We get in late afternoon on Saturday, so I was thinking all day Sunday and Monday, and leaving on Tuesday morning. Is that enough time? We want to do the tram tour, Anhinga Trail, and an airboat ride. Is two days enough? Also I am so confused about where to stay. I would like...More

Sorry to be asking another question. I I found a hotel called Fairway Inn Florida City. They told me they were about 1/2 hour from the main entrance to the park, but they were over an hour to Shark Valley. Are there any accommodations that would be in between the main entrance (Ernest F. Coe) and Shark Valley? I hope this isn't a really stupid question. Thanks!!

Keys & Everglades: Is March/April a Good Time for Both? (18 Replies)
(I also posted this in the S. Florida forum, but it was suggested I post it here, as well). Trying to plan a trip to the Keys next spring (2016) with a trip before or after to explore the Everglades, but am worried about the seasonal timing. Is end of March/early April a good time for BOTH? In the Keys we want to snorkel, paddle board, kayak, and do at least a day trip hanging out in Key West & catching the sunset. (Water temps? Do Middle-Keys snorkeling tours provide wetsuits?) ...More

Yes,, it's a great time in both places. Warm, sunny weather, but not the oppressive heat of summer and the bugs in The Evergladeshavent gotten too bad yet. Rain is also unusual that time of year.
