Easy walk with lots of alligators and wildlife. A little crowded, but that was to be expected. Sad to see some of the people were throwing sticks at alligators and provoking wildlife.

One of the easiest areas in the Everglades to get clear "close-up" views of alligators. Also a great area to see Tilapia bedding. An easy walking trail with some great information on the local flora and fauna.

Not really a hike, but beautiful wild life in this short trail. Nice birds, gators, turtles... Really pretty. Just a great place for people who loves photography.

I would in no way call this one a "hike". If you want to see some gators, turtles and a few birds without really getting out in the 'Glades, then this walk is for you. Good for little kids and older folks, especially when it is super hot. There are bathrooms and a gift shop, and vending machines. ***I saw tourists getting really close to a baby gator and crouching next to it to get a picture. REMEMBER - baby gators means mama's not far away and they are VERY protective!*** Gators may look slow, but they can get up on all fours and MOVE fast, so always show them respect and give them plenty of room!

A very nice intro to the Everglades. Usually full of gators, turtles, and birds. Great for small kids, the elderly, and those in between not into hiking.
