Very nice and a little short nature walk! Not many bugs at all when we went. Saw a very large hawk!

This trail is very accslessibel, short, and mostly shaded. I saw people with strollers and small children. The path is a bit uneven but paved so very accessible.

This is a great paved path for anyone to view the variety of plant life found in a tropical hammock at Everglades National Park. It can be buggy to very buggy. If you are ever in South Florida you should have bug spray all the time!

Small trail from royal palms visitor center. It gives a thick forest feeling. Very quick and it’s fun. Saw a red cardinal while walking here

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

Good trail through thick foliage. I tacked on the hidden lake at the end which probably added a mile and a half. It’s not on here (as far as I saw) but it’s on the Royal Palm trail map you can get at the visitor center. The hike to the lake was nothing out of the ordinary but the lake was absolutely gorgeous. Great hikes either way but I preferred Anhinga more

Really nice trail to kill the time. I usually go here to find branches on the ground to carve. Really pretty in the right weather, bit of trees down from irma.

This trail is very easy to walk. I did not see much wildlife but there were a lot of different trees, pines and ferns. There are also a lot of trees along the trail that have fallen due to the hurricane, but the trail has been cleared to allow people to hike it.

Close to Anhinga trail, but very different habitat and is much less crowded. Shaded, short, flat. Hardwood hammock.

A nice, short, informative and shaded loop trail that is easy to combine with the Anhinga Trail.

This is a short walk on a paved trail, but there are some nice sights along the way. Bug spray is a must. No fewer than seven mosquitoes were buzzing around me at any time. Thanks to bug spray, I didn't get a single bite- but I shudder to think what would have happened without. There are some informative plaques along the trail, so this is great for the curious tourist unfamiliar with south Florida's environment.

Nice shaded walk to get out of the sun, and read about some of the plants that grow there. Right next to the Anhinga trail.

It's more of a walk than a hike--compacted dirt with some roots thrown in as a possible trip hazard. The trail goes through a hammock and highlights plants and things unique to the Everglades. Very pretty, great for the kids. Just keep in mind this trail is directly next to Anhinga Trail, and that trail is littered with gators and birds as as the season turns into summer with rainy and wet gators have more access to this trail.
