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.

I hiked this trail to the very end, and LOVED it. We camped overnight as well. Easily one of the most unique trails on the continent.

The first half of the loop (right side) is wonderful, with lots of birds and gators to see as you ride through. The observation tower is also great, but the second half of the loop was surprisingly barren and boring.

Scenic and quiet through coastal prairie and hardwood hammock, ending at a peak of Florida Bay. Bring a bug jacket and head net because the mosquitos are pretty heavy.

During the dry season. The first half is good with plenty of things to see. The midpoint tower is a must. So much going on in a small area. The second half there wasn't much to see. I'd recommend using a bike.
