This is a short hike and us scenic but if you are short on time thus is one to miss. The signs say you might see owls, but we didn't see any.

Beautiful old growth mahogany trees. It's quite shady so it's a nice respite from the sun. Short easy walk and again a very different perspective of the Everglades.

This is an amazing piece of preserved nature. It definitely worth a visit! Only negative thing to say about Mahogany Hammock are litters all around the trail. But it reflects respect of humans for nature.

This trail is more scenic for the trees, not the animals. We did see a snake slithering onto a tree from the walkway but he was very tiny and the only one we saw the whole time. The walk is peaceful and pretty. This trail took about 15 minutes.

My friend and I enjoyed Mahogany Hammock. We went when the mosquitoes were plentiful so had to wear repellent but it was worth it.

I went really early in the morning and was the only one there and this was a nice short walk through a wild and tropical forest. I'm from a higher latitude and this forest reminded me of how much closer you are to the tropics here. This is a nice shady walk without too much heat in the morning, and... More

Great stroll through the trees and the beautiful air plants not to be missed, also do not miss reading the markers along the way, very informative.

This short boardwalk is refreshing on a hot day. Once inside the hammock it is cool. The largest mahogany tree is here but it is surrounded by thick foliage. Listen for the resident barred owls that live here.

This is a short 1/2-mile boardwalk jaunt around an entirely different Everglades ecosystem. Not much in the way of wildlife here, but a much more wooded ecosystem than any other place you'll stop around here. Lots of the gumbo-limbo trees, air plants, and you'll also find the largest living mahogany tree in the US - quite fun! Worth a stop... More
