  • Great introduction into the Everglades. There were lots of trails with plenty of seating along the way. Anhinga trail is a perfect spot for young children, older people and everyone in between. Bathrooms and vending machines are nearby for people that forgot the snacks at home.
  • Grab a good flashlight and walk the boardwalk at night, when no admission is required to get into the park. The gators are extremely active at night and it's an experience you won't forget. Bring bug spray!
  • Great trail for the whole family. Stroller friendly and not many bugs during winter months. We saw over 30 alligators along the trail with 27 of those being concentrated in one spot. Easy walk and even though there were lots of people there it didn't feel crowded.
  • What can I say it's the everglades. Nice boardwalk, trails, info small gift shop and educational programs. Lots to learn and see at this stop.
  • This is the best trail if you want to see alligators in a short period of time. The walkways are easy to navigate and this is probably the best condensed version of the entire park in one place.
