Gumbo Limbo Trail is a 0.4 mile loop trail located near Homestead, FL that offers the chance to see wildlife. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking and walking. Dogs are also able to use this 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.
Easy and informative!
Interesting little trail with information about the local flora of the Everglades. Easy paved trail great for an introduction to the area.
Nice shaded walk to get out of the sun, and read about some of the plants that grow there. Right next to the Anhinga trail.
It's more of a walk than a hike--compacted dirt with some roots thrown in as a possible trip hazard. The trail goes through a hammock and highlights plants and things unique to the Everglades. Very pretty, great for the kids. Just keep in mind this trail is directly next to Anhinga Trail, and that trail is littered with gators and birds as as the season turns into summer with rainy and wet gators have more access to this trail.
Nice little walk. Good for children to explore.
