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.

A very short boardwalk loop with a lookout tower...fantastic views of the river of grass and lots of wildlife.

A nice, short, informative and shaded loop trail that is easy to combine with the Anhinga Trail.

This is a short walk on a paved trail, but there are some nice sights along the way. Bug spray is a must. No fewer than seven mosquitoes were buzzing around me at any time. Thanks to bug spray, I didn't get a single bite- but I shudder to think what would have happened without.
There are some informative plaques along the trail, so this is great for the curious tourist unfamiliar with south Florida's environment.

Great flat road trail, best to go in the winter when you see more gators

Fun to see alligators in their natural habitat. We saw more gators here than other spots and pretty close to the boardwalk. Loved seeing the Spanish moss.
