Flat walk swamp all around orchids are great along with more herrings than anywhere I've seen. Really nice walk/hike.
My husband and I hiked this with our 12 year old daughter. Made it 5 miles. Came across an old boarded up little house with a porch swing. There was a lake behind the house full of gators. we hiked the East trail. Be prepared for a lot of bugs..lol. Bring your bug spray
Pretty much my favorite place in Florida! Every thing from orchids to panthers, I highly recommend a swamp walk I was a little nervous at first but became one of the most amazing things I have ever done!
