  • This shaded trail is a nice pleasant walk on a hot day. It is at the start of the anhinga Trail at Royal Palm. Watch for snakes. 
  • Great nature experience. A narrow path as in the jungle. Animals, one should here but don't expect but enjoy nature and examine the diverse species of trees and shrubs.

  • 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!

  • 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!
