As a part of Everglades National Park, the 24 km (15 mi) trail winds through alligator territory and is also home to turtles, deer, and other wildlife.

  • We went together to the shark Valley. On the ground, we had to pay $25 for parking (IMPORTANT: let the receipt for entry given.) So you can go within by 10 days in Florida city in the Everglades). We rented US 2 bikes ($9 / h per person) and thus went to the Tower (there and back, in total ca. 23 miles). All in all was a good tour.

  • We arrived in Uber! Watch out for the return there is absolutely no wifi anywhere, no Uber comes and no taxi no more unless you have a number on hand and they take you over $ 100 to return to Miami... The manager of the restaurant across the road took pity and dropped us at the entrance to the city. Otherwise we loved the Park, we took time to look and were able to admire beautiful birds and alligators along the course in all sizes. However disappointed with the reception at the entrance of the Park. A shrew is sitting in his cabin and you Gets a mouth full! treating you like good dumb sheep and by talking to children. 4 national parks across the United States during the month of September it is the location that we received with my companion.

  • My wife and I have rented us bicycles at the shark Valley visitor center and did the trail by bicycle. We saw lots of birds and a few alligators. Right at the beginning of the trail even a mother with pups. At the Tower, we could in the water a turtle seen. The entire road is paved and very good in weft. The scenery is very beautiful and there is so much to discover. It took us about 2 1/2 hours for the 15 miles. It's really important to bring a hat, sunscreen and water. On the viewing tower, there is virtually no shade. We had each 1 litre of water and that was already very tight. If we had had another half liter, we were drinking the also.
