The West Lake trail can be reached from the Everglades park's east entrance, about 7 miles before you reach Flamingo. There is a spur road to your left, which leads back to a parking lot with restrooms (with running water) at the trailhead.
This is a boardwalk trail with no stairs, so it would be fine (a little bumpy) for strollers or wheelchairs. It is a loop trail that leads through dense mangroves and eventually out over West Lake. Coming out of the mangroves onto the lake was such a beautiful surprise! The trail was shady the whole way except for the short portion over the lake.
