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.
