  • We paid the entrance to the Park of 20 bucks to see only this trail, but once close, we realized that it was closed for renovation! I am not telling anger for not having known before, we would have saved time and money. So we folded over each other ... but in my view this park doesn't offer anything fancy. A long road that divides it into two, we got up to the end, but I repeat nothing exhilarating. Inform yourself before entering the Park. Visited on 9 September

  • We had arranged the stopover at Homestead (12 August) because I had to do the Walk Trail within the Park of the Everglades. The problem is that after we get more than half an hour away and parked, we realized that the Trail was closed due to renovations. Well no I describe the disappointment, I couldn't wait to make that Trail ... We saw a couple of crocodiles, many giant grasshoppers ... But we expected a lot more! The road that enters the Park is very beautiful!

  • A great trail and you definitely should take it. You will see a lot of wildlife along the way just watch carefully.
  • We were lucky enough to fit in this trail before going to the airport. There were quite a few alligators lounging around, partially hidden amongst the undergrowth in the heat....and a couple swimming up and down providing good photographic opportunities. There are restrooms and the trail was free! A great end to our holiday.
  • Really nice place to experience the Everglades. There were plenty of alligators and lots of anhingas there in the winter when I went
  • A wonderful and beautiful trail that is paved and mostly a board walk way. You'll be able to see all kinds of wild life, including alligators and turtles. The fauna is always very impressive as well. A must stop off for first time visitors.
  • We only had an hour to spend in the Everglades. So, this place gave us the best views in a short duration. We were able to see some crocodiles. We also saw some beautifully colored birds.
