A nice boardwalk with sprawling views of the river of grass. Great photography location with many bird sightings if it's not too busy. Just like everywhere else in the Everglades, you're going to want to bring bug spray!Show more

The Jetty Trail is a short and easy walk along a mangrove-lined shore that leads to the Colonial Bird Protection Area at the end of a jetty. Information panels can be found along the trail that discuss the environment and wildlife in the area.The start of the trail is by the shore near the picnic area at the Dante Fascell Visitor Center. Half of the trail is a boardwalk and the other is a smooth, gravel/sand surface. Though not deemed a handicap accessible trail, wheelchairs should be able to make it from end to end. Might require some help once off of the boardwalk. The Jetty Trail is the most scenic of all the trail in the park. Being short and easy it is a good way to spend time if you are waiting for an excursion to depart or Ranger program to start. Walking this trail is one of the few things to do in the park for those without a boat. Show more
