The trail is a must do part of any visit to the Park. The boardwalk provides great access to the fresh water marsh. lots of birds and alligators. Be sure to walk all the way around and take your time.

This trail is short, but sweet. You get to see the glades for miles. There is a viewing deck that is elevated to get a good view. There is also a flat deck that lets you see the prairie from a closer view. This trail...More

Stopped here but didn't see any wildlife on the boardwalk except for one egret. It was more scenic driving along the road to the center to see egrets and herons in the cypress trees. Might be more birds there during other times, so will stop...More

This is a short walk but has a nice overlook of the slough, or sea of grass. Many lizards and birds and you get an overlook from higher up of the slough then get to walk right over it. It is a boardwalk and handicapped...More

This boardwalk goes out into a freshwater marl prairie. Early mornings are best; nice light at sunrise and not many people.

We stopped here based on the recommendation of the visitor center and it was well worth the stop. So beautiful and vast. Bring insect repellent though.

This is a short trail over a boardwalk, with an observation tower in the middle. From there you have a nice view out over a large grassy plain scene, as well as a clump of cypress trees. Not much in the way of wildlife here...More

Great little hike but kind of short. There are some great views and wildlife. The walkways take you above the swamp and allow you to appreciate nature without being lost to it.
