  • First of all: no mosquito spray we had not bought dared, previously on the trail in Florida city. Since the Anhinga trail for renovation was closed, the deutschsparchige leadership (Wednesday 11 h from the Royal Palm Visitor Center) found with Caren after the introduction of this trail statt...und we have our first alligator seen!

  • This ~1/2-mile boardwalk trail was worth a stop. Again, not a lot of wildlife here, but an altogether different ecosystem than you saw at other stops. This one is named for the gumbo limbo trees that ...  read more »
  • A nice walk in the Woods. It is not large remarkable species of wildlife, except for some birds, lizards and turtles. It is quite logical that it is not alligator as it is a virtually dry wood (I don't understand the other comments in this regard). There are some beautiful specimens of flora, but most visitors care probably, because usually more interested in wildlife. In conclusion it is a quiet ride, not a spectacular trail. It is also generally the spirit of the Everglades, show fans should go up on Orlando for research of sensations.

  • 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.
  • Not much on the trail.
