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.

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.

Super crowded on weekends in the winter but fabulous for seeing wildlife. Anhingas, herons, alligators and more. It is worth winding your way through tourists from around the globe.

Easy walk with lots of alligators and wildlife. A little crowded, but that was to be expected. Sad to see some of the people were throwing sticks at alligators and provoking wildlife.

One of the easiest areas in the Everglades to get clear "close-up" views of alligators. Also a great area to see Tilapia bedding. An easy walking trail with some great information on the local flora and fauna.
