  • We didn't have a lot of time, so I was worried that we wouldn't be able to see anything. Wow- was I mistaken! In just an hour or so, we saw at least 25 alligators, turtles, and all sorts of birds. It ...  more »

  • From Miami, this is easily reached by car. It is a short but beautiful trail. You see here very much diverse wildlife. We have seen many here alligatotrs but also large turtles, pelicans and many species of birds. It is but a trail of 1200 metres but you get to see very much and is real and must do if you're on this side of the Everglades. And if you're here then you'd better also the Gumbo Limbo trail running. That's still something shorter and leads you through a forest of tropical trees.

  • 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.
