if you have done the Anhinga Trail - then you must take this shorter one too -- even just for the shade - we were the only other couple on the trail and took us about 30 minutes..

learn about 'relief rocks' and gumbo limbo tress --- level and shaded...

This is a very short trail. It is an easy stroll with interesting information along the route. Plenty fascinating plant life and offers a cool escape from the sun. Pairs well with Anhinga Trail.

This trail leads past slick-barked unique red gumbo limbo trees. We appreciated how quickly the jungle-like surroundings regenerated themselves after Hurricane Andrew's 175 mph winds devastated the area only about 20 years ago. Didn't know we had such jungle in the USA.

A pretty trail to get exposed to vegetation that will be seen from afar in other areas of the park. Will have context for the gumbo limbo tree as it is discussed by Rangers/other signage.

Very short stroll through woods. Nothing much to commend it except some lovely large trees and the fact that it can easily be added to the better (but also short) Anhinga Trail.
