Went on a swamp walk and it was the best experience ever. Mike Owen, the biologist, gives a very informative and exciting tour through the swamp, you will see lots of orchids and bromeliads. We felt like explorers . We are hooked and keep coming back for more adventure. The West Main Trail is a great hike. About 2 miles in you will find a little Florida cabin called the Fakahatchee Hilton. It is a private cabin, but you can sit on the porch for a rest. Pack a picknic and sit on the little boardwalk overlooking the gator pond. The REAL Florida experience.

My husband and I hiked this with our 12 year old daughter. Made it 5 miles. Came across an old boarded up little house with a porch swing. There was a lake behind the house full of gators. we hiked the East trail. Be prepared for a lot of bugs..lol. Bring your bug spray

Pretty much my favorite place in Florida! Every thing from orchids to panthers, I highly recommend a swamp walk I was a little nervous at first but became one of the most amazing things I have ever done!
