Went to Everglades National Park with my friends this weekend to go on the canoe trip to Snake Bight! Absolutely AMAZING! We saw hundreds of birds, shorebirds, American white pelicans, and even WILD Flamingo's! Dolphins, Crocodiles, Manatees, and fish! Canoeing through beautiful Mangroves and listening...More

We had little problem with mosquitoes while in the everglades except for this trail. A 2-minute shower preceded our visit and must have somehow made the zillion mosquitoes emerge. We had spray and netting and it was still miserable. I turned back early with my...More

I would suggest visiting this part of the park during a cooler time of the year. There's absolutely no way to survive with the bugs and mosquitos. It honestly doesn't look that impressive anyway and it's not worth the torture.

As well as other reviewers, I only walked one minute, before running back to the car, due to mosquitoes. What's incredible to me is, only my face and arms were not covered by clothes; and I had abundantly sprayed them with 50% DEET. No way:...More

This trail was too buggy to walk on. We started and turned around almost immediately and headed back. The ranger also admitted to me there really isn't much to see at the end of the trail
