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.

Close to Anhinga trail, but very different habitat and is much less crowded. Shaded, short, flat. Hardwood hammock.

Flat, short, straight. Moderate mosquitos. Ends at a nice lookout to Florida Bay.

Mosquitos are bad, but the coastal prairie is beautiful and it's a chance to get away from the crowds.

Boardwalk trail, easy for all abilities with a high chance of seeing alligators, turtles, anhingas, fish, and other birds. Very busy trail but worth doing once.

Dry in the winter with mild mosquitos. Flat, easy hike to Pine Glades Lake. I saw nobody else on the trail.

Boardwalk through hardwood hammock. Short, easy, crowded.

Deep water and mud most of the trail, lots of mosquitos, you'll want a head net and sleeves. Bring plenty of water, the prairie is exposed to the hot sun.

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.
