Grassy Water Preserve’s Cypress Boardwalk is a relatively short (about 1 mile with extra loops) walkway completely on an elevated wooden path. The park gate shuts at 4:30pm M-Sa and 5:00pm on Sunday.

Such a beautiful boardwalk through the marshlands. Captures the beauty of Big Cypress for those who want a less-muddy view of cypress marsh.

relaxing place to visit

Out of time, but still want to fit a little Florida Everglades into your visit? This is a great short stroll for introducing visitors — or your kids — to alligators, a Cypress swamp and various Florida birds. Lovely wooden boardwalk with scenic viewpoints, some with comfortable wooden rocking chairs, so you can stay and sit awhile, listening to birds and gators. Very pleasant experience. There are also canoes and kayaks to rent at the trailhead, but nobody was working there when I visited. Four stars, only because trail is so short.
