  • If, like us you have a limited amount of time, this is an excellent trail to visit. Located near the main entrance this short trail gives you a boardwalk access to a large number of birds and gators.  more »

  • 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.
