  • This trail is fairly short, but its a little rugged. The trees are growing onto the trail and the trail itself is bumpy in parts. Dont get me wrong, it is a beautiful trail with trees all around. Ther...  more »
  • Enjoyed this short walk through the woods, saw butterflies and snails and various fauna, including a huge strangler fig. A different experience than the neighboring Anhinga Trail which is a boardwalk,...  more »
  • Meaningless little paved walking in sloppy forest, no animals or birds. This we could have been without.

  • 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!
