  • We have on the way to key West or visited the Everglades. For this, we chose this trail. We could see some animals. Negatively, it is sure that everything from tourists is crowded, as it is not far from Miami. We have visited on our Florida tour, the corkscrew swamp and the six mile Cypress Slough and enjoyed much more these (uncrowded) and have seen more animals. The Everglades are overvalued in our opinion.

  • Very interesting trail allowing you to get a good idea of the Everglades. In addition, gateways were entirely redone recently, which adds to the comfort of the visit. Come early in the morning or late at night to enjoy the quiet.

  • Around the trail is forest. The world of the movie twilight. Covers the trunks of the trees out into the sky over Moss. In the swamps of the hordes. I like dinosaurs were getting staff.

  • 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.
