Easy to hike boardwalk through a variety of natural environments. Plenty of interesting vegetation and an ever-changing mix of birds, reptiles, and butterflies plus the occasional bobcat and wild pig. An old-Florida "wilderness" just off the Interstate and other major roads

Went to Six Mile Cypress Slough expecting to see more wildlife. Maybe I was there at the wrong time of year, but I saw little. However, it was a nice walk on the boardwalk, regardless.

The "wet walk" is totally awesome! Take a change of clothes though! The guides are very knowledgable and it it is great for teens and science enthusiasts

Enjoyable on your own but better yet with a guide. The guide can spot wildlife you may not notice and has lots of good information. Good place for nature pictures. The trees give good cover from the heat but always bring water when you plan to be outside awhile. Guides charge a couple dollars. Have to pay hourly parking.

The 1.2-mile boardwalk takes you through several different eco systems where we saw many different animals; gaur, alligators, snakes, and birds. I never thought it would be possible to visit a park like this in the wet season but there are fish that eat the bugs making it a very pleasant trip even in the summer. I can’t wait to... More

Nice boardwalk through out the park. Parking fee. Restrooms & wildlife center. Lots of local wildlife. Very nice place to bring kids. Handicap accessible. This place would be awesome if others would heed the signs about being quiet & respectful of others.

Had a great time I highly recommend it . It free and parking $1 per hour. $5 for the day. The parking fees pay to help preserve so I paid $5 even though we were there for 2 hrs.
