Enjoy an easy hike and observe the wildlife on Anhinga Trail, a boardwalk over Taylor Slough that is 6 km (4 mi) from the Everglades National Park entrance. Walk out 600 m (0.4 miles) over a sawgrass marsh area. From the boardwalk, visitors can often see many different Everglades species, from local birds to large reptiles, such as alligators. The trail is wheelchair-accessible, but cycling is not allowed. Plan my trip to Everglades National Park with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Anhinga Trail reviews
This is a great place to get a good idea of what the Everglades is like. Definitely take the ranger guided tour along the boards. Very educational and informative. Thanks especially to Ranger Daniel.

Amazing park to visit inside Everglades national park. Park entrance fee $30 for private car 7 day pass. Good parking spot for bus and cars. Has restroom and vending machine. Saw alligators and different type of birds.lots of fish(fishing not allowed). Walkway trail to see the alligators and wonder around is really good and easy to walk thru.
Awesome board walk. Saw 4 alligators, turtle, and plenty of fish. I highly recommend getting there at 10:30am for the ranger tour. She (forgot her name) was super informative and knows the area well. It was easy to take a stroller on, wheel chair accessible too. Fun fact: there are vultures that will pick the rubber off your car, they offer tarps to cover your car with but they don't have a lot. So if you can plan ahead bring a blanket or something to cover your car.
A nice trail. If you like to see a good variety of fish and birds, this is a good trail to do. The park had a nice guided tour of this trail. This trail is not shady, and the sun is bright. It has bathrooms nearby. The trail takes you to pathways that are like bridges over the wet areas. It's a nice place to take great pictures. Sometime, you see gators. This path had some bees. I would wear pants.
I only went for a few hours so it’s hard to fully assess it accurately, but I did go through the Homestead entrance which is the main one and checked out some of the key highlights in that area. Note that park entrance is $30 per vehicle but the path is good for seven days so going one day isn’t really gonna make it a sweet deal and this is a Park that you could spend several days in. Of course the highlight of the Everglades is taking in all the natural beauty and creatures and that’s exactly what I did during my visit. Highly recommend taking the popular Anhinga Trail if visiting briefly as it I truly is your best shot at seeing some cool wildlife.
I saw a bunch of wildlife! I did not see any Anhingas sadly but I did see two alligators 🐊(not crocodiles) and a bunch of fish. I also saw different kinds of birds. There was these grasshoppers that are enormous but you can’t touch them because they’re poisonous. I would walk this trail again. I had a bunch of fun and would recommend to anyone in the area.
