The Everglades are the largest subtropical wilderness in the United States. This mangrove ecosystem and marine estuary is home to 36 protected species, including the Florida panther, American crocodile, and West Indian manatee. Some areas have been drained and developed; restoration projects aim to restore the ecology. Some entrances are closed seasonally.

14-mile loop deep into the Everglades and back. Path lined with alligators all the way and back. Best to go during winter to avoid mosquitos.

A short boardwalk to a lookout tower with expansive views of the marshland...and a great place for wildlife spotting.

Tremendous views, great diversity and wonderful wildlife. Come in the winter...and still bring the bug spray.

One of the few real hiking trails that I attempted during my visit last Thanksgiving weekend. This would be a great trail in the dead of a cold south Florida winter or if you are 100% prepared for the onslaught. Despite my near heroic efforts, as well as being covered head to toe and doused with bug spray, I was not able to complete it. They really should rename it Mosquito Bite Trail. If you are looking for a challenge, this truly qualifies.

A shaded boardwalk through the interesting mangroves that briefly escapes to great views from the edge of West Lake. Prepare for the mosquitoes.

A wonderful boardwalk across the river of grass to a short and beautiful loop through a unique Mahogany hammock.
