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.

This trail is short but well worth seeing - especially in the dry season!! There are so many different types of wildlife to see. There were also more alligators on this trail than I've ever seen atone time. We counted roughly 25-30 alligators in one spot at the end of the trail. We felt like we were in the movie Jurassic Park. Not long, but worth seeing while in the Everglades.

Excellent trail for see all kinds of wildlife. Took a Ranger-led tour and learned a lot about everything on this trail to see. One of the top trails in the Glades IMO.

Unless you're really into hiking a long way and seeing the same thing, i suggest taking the tram tour (excellent and time efficient) or biking.

Trail was easy and flat except the swarms of mosquitos, the rain, thick mud, wind, and the 150 meters of waist deep water and mud awaiting is just before Clubhouse Beach. We stayed the night and woke to a very cold, wind sweeping rainstorm. Challenging trail and we have no regrets. Beach was beautiful and so was the flora. This was a one time affair. No desire to do it again.

Super crowded on weekends in the winter but fabulous for seeing wildlife. Anhingas, herons, alligators and more. It is worth winding your way through tourists from around the globe.

When it comes to hiking and you just like to have a long walk then go for it. If you are into hiking to see nice views don't waste the leg work. For the first 7 miles after the third alligator you've seen enough. The last loop is just grass and swamp on both sides. You are walking on asphalt the whole way. It was just miserable.
