A short boardwalk to a lookout tower with expansive views of the marshland...and a great place for wildlife spotting.

Fun to see alligators in their natural habitat. We saw more gators here than other spots and pretty close to the boardwalk. Loved seeing the Spanish moss.

Short walking trail above the marshlands, easy to see pupfish and many local birds. Like many of the tourist trails in the National Park there are signs with lots of information.

This is a great little trail that has a boardwalk and scenic view. It's not very long but you have a lot of opportunities to see animals in the mangroves.

This little short trail is kinda off the path but was my favorite this vacation. There was a small Alligator hanging out under the boardwalk just 2 feet away from us and while there he made a run on a catfish hiding nearby. It was awesome.
