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.

Super easy trail and huge reward. Plenty of bird and alligator activity. Definitely worth a stopover.

Dirt road 7 miles each way, mostly smooth with some bumpy areas. Pretty, but mostly the same views. Filtered sun and full sun. Ends at a very pretty pond. We took the main park road back to Long Pine Key campground.

Look out for the poison ivy. It is sticking out into the path all along it. Shaded walk with no wildlife.

Came unprepared for mosquitoes. They weren’t that bad at campground. Had to cut the hike short.

Counted 78 alligators in the 15 miles. Totally worth it, weather was gorgeous.

If you go to the Everglades don't spend much time on this trial. Short and boring.Just go and explore other trials.

I really love the Everglades but 30 $ for the entrance is too much.

Awesome trail that goes through an endangered forest in the Everglades. We entered and connected with the long pine key trail from the lake / picnic area and cut through a thick forest at the south end of the lake. On our way back we spooked a large cotton mouth snake (water moccasin). Thankfully none of us got bit. Awesome experience though.

Biked this trail. Sunrise and sunset. 32 alligators next to trail. Beautiful!!!!!

My wife almost stepped on a snake. Watch out!

My friend and I gave this canoe trail a try out on Tuesday, however our map got wet and the water level was too low for my liking so I decided to abort it and went to walk down in Flamingo. I much prefer to paddle than to have to bury my paddle in the mud and use it as a pole to move my kayak forward. I think I will give it a try again but need to wait for water level to increase a bit, I think it was a feet of water or less at times on the short section I did at the beginning.

Solo hike, out and back. First time on this trail. I had no cell phone service. It was an advanced hike. This trail is not being maintained. Almost made it to Clubhouse Beach. It was not easy. The trail was muddy with standing water all the way back to the first turn off for Bayshore Loop. It got muddier from there. I did not see any other footprints in the mud for the whole hike. No large downed trees, but had to clear out some medium and small debris in the buttonwoods. For this trail under these conditions, I recommend hiking boots that reach higher than the ankles, long pants, a long sleeve shirt and a hat with a mosquito net. Use lots of bug spray and bring plenty of water. If you think you have enough water, bring more. It was a little hot in the prairie sections which were muddy, so it was slow and hot going. The marsh to the north was pretty close to the trail due to flooding. I did not see any alligators. I did see what MIGHT have been alligator paths crossing from the marsh on the north side to the woods on the south side, mostly in the prairie sections. In the buttonwoods, it gets cooler but there are much more mosquitoes, especially where flooded. The bugs weren't too bad as long as I kept moving. When it is wet, this trail is a definite "no go" without proper gear. About 60% of the trail was either mud or water. Made it to the turnoff for the beach, but no further. The marsh was too deep and there was lots of standing water. The trail is great if you like a challenge. The scenery is unique and beautiful. I do not recommend going when it is this wet unless you are geared up. At some pretty long portions of the prairie sections, I was unable to go more than 1 about mph in the mud, scanning for gators the whole time. On your way in, keep detailed notes of features you notice and their locations in writing and/or take pictures. Look out for areas that may get you lost or confused. You may need those notes/pictures on the way out because some areas are submerged, leaving no footprints to follow out. Not a good place to get lost, but pretty easy to stay on the path even if flooded if you pay close attention on the way in. Overall, this hike was not worth the effort under these conditions, but it is a hike that I will definitely remember. I will be back again for another go at it when conditions are more dry. Plan on a potential 7 to 8 hour hike when conditions are this flooded. Be safe and watch out for gators and crocodiles. They co-exist in this area. I do not recommend going solo under these conditions.
