Lots to learn about mangroves, very insightful. The lake is peaceful and serene. There are bathrooms here, a picnic area for large groups, and a boat dock. Very nice.

You can't go wrong here. A nice little shady walk -- use mosquito repellent during the warm months. Regardless of mosquitoes, I still give this an excellent rating because the natural beauty can't be topped - there are areas that are just as beautiful, however.

This is a boardwalk through dense trees, with the opportunity to see wildlife from the Everglades. A nice change from walking in the open sun.

If you only have one day to visit the Everglades, I would hit the bigger trails (Anhinga and Sharks Valley). If the purpose of your trip is to see alligators in the wild, this trail is probably not the trail / boardwalk to see them in (we didn't see any). It is similar to the other boardwalks (if you don't... More

Located just off the main road to the Flamingo Visitors Center, this site is an easy walk over the tallgrass swamp and through a mahogany forest. It is all raised boardwalk, no issues for those with trouble hiking though there are a few stairs.

Amazing the different Eco systems present in the Everglades. This is more like a jungle than the prairie like swamps in the glades.

A nice short boardwalk through trees and bushes with lovely views at the beginning and end over the swamp areas! You can also just walk the first 100ms for overlooking the swamp areas.

We wanted to see what a mahogany tree looked like so walked this trail. There is a very large one with a sign nearby. It's a nice walk about 0.5 mile long.
