As all airboat tours in the Everglades were cancelled the afternoon we were down there, due to thunder storms, we decided that we go biking instead to at least have a chance to see something. This was mid June and once we started biking, 10...More

15 miles of paved trail though the Everglades to walk, bike ( you can hire bikes), or take a ranger guided tram ride. The guide was very knowledgeable. The observation tower at the end of the 7 mole path was very cool.

You can rent bikes here or take a tram ride. There was not much action with the wildlife. Perhaps it was the intense heat keeping all the animals hidden.

A rare opportunity to get close to the wildlife in the Everglades. Birds, alligators,snakes, fish, and Florida Fauna . You can see it while riding bikes. An incredible experience.

Five of us rent the bikes and it took us 3 hours to finish this 15 mile loop. The weather was hot and humid. We did not see any gators, but it was fun to have a family workout.
