  • The trail is nothing special. It just runs through bushes and trees and sees only a species: MOSQUITOS and even in December.

  • As it is right next to the Anhinga Trail, can we go but it is not big thing aside from the undergrowth. It's quite dark, we see no fauna... except mosquitoes in large numbers. And we're more concerned with pushing away them because they attack despite all the repellents to take care of the course.

  • Too many mosquitoes inside, only went through a portion and we ran! If you're not wearing long pants or a good dose of repellent, do not try it!

  • Although Gumbo Limbo is a short trail, it has a lot for those who take time to read signs and look closely at the vegetation and ground. During parts of the year, this trail is alive with Zebra butterflies. While it's not a much of a "wow" as most other trails in the Everglades, it does have it's charm. Before hurricane Andrew (1992), you could not see the sky from the trail because the growth was so thick. By the early 2010's, it was still mostly open to the sky, and in recent years it is slowly getting more of its canopy back. It's funny hearing people talk about the millions of mosquitoes in the summer. Hey, WHY would you ever come to see the Everglades in the summer anyhow???? :)
  • This trail shows you the vegetation in the everglades. It's a short trail but in the summer time mosquitos hide out here as well. Make sure you wear repellent. You will pass a pond. Enjoy the view. I saw a turtle swimming right next to the boardwalk.
  • Aside from a lot of different labelled plant species, there wasn't much to see on this short trail. It's not very crowded so at least it's a nice little getaway from the busier Anhinga Trail nearby.
  • Unfortunately nothing special except billions of mosquitos. The Anhinga trail nearby is much more better.
  • Nice Trail!
