Super cool observation tower at the half way point. Be picky about the bike you rent, some of the seats tilt forward. If you’re going when it’s hot out be sure to bring at least 3 water bottles a person, it’s a 15 mile trail with no shade. Beautiful if you enjoy the Everglades. We only seen one alligator, but it was because it was the end of June at noon time (too hot).

This is simply a fantastic trail for a beautiful scenery and endless road to travel. There’s a great vantage point/viewpoint at the halfway loop that features an impressive sight of the Everglades. Bring bug spray! Those pesky mosquitoes are on the prowl!

(May 2019) What an amazing place! I walked the entirety of the fort and explored the inside and outside of its walls. Then right before I had to leave I threw on my snorkel and swam around the whole fort. A surprising amount of coral and fish right along the outer walls. Unreal experience. The water is so blue it almost doesn't look real in photos.

Awesome bike ride! If you’re renting the bikes, don’t just go for the first one you see! Be picky because you’ll be sitting on that seat for 15 miles! The observation tower had amazing views but unfortunately the gators weren’t out at all when we went! Not one single one lol but lots of beautiful birds!

One of the most beautiful places I’ve been. Worth every penny for the ferry ride out. Can’t wait to return!

This trail was amazing! I took the tram tour for $27. It was raining on and off and I was so amazed at the amount of people that still wanted to go. The tour guide was super knowledgeable! Even the driver made sure that we all captured great finds of birds and gators. Once we got to the tower, we saw a gator and a croc which the tour guide said was super unusual. They even went at it! It started to rain while we were up the tower so it was nice to hang around and take everything in. It was such a great experience. Well worth it!

They should call the trail: Bug Bite instead of snake bight. Buggy!!!! I used up half a can of OFF. Only thing that helped was wearing hat low over forehead and wearing a circular headscarf as a face mask covering neck, ears, cheeks just below the eyes. Sunglasses didn’t deter the varmits from the eyes. Path was nice but you saw a lot of the same scenery mile after mile. Some birds and the water view was great at the end. I would do again but on bike

Absolutely Beautiful Place!

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.

Make sure you hit all 3 parts of the park. Flamingo, Royal Palm and Sharkvalley. Lots of wildlife, beautiful birdwatching. Bring a canoe for the Flamingo Center Area. Next time I come back we will most definitey have one rentals were not available during our visit. Do Not Forget your Sunblock and Bugspray!! I’d love to camp there someday. Easy 3 day stay here. There are gator grill restaurants just outside the park for adventurous gator bites and tacos

I wouldnt want to miss this spot while visiting Evergaldes NP. The overlook over the prairie is beaultiful. Kid friendly. Theres shade

Went in early May, with this being one of the few trails open in the pandemic. But what a nice trail it was. BUGS SPRAY IS ESSENTIAL OR YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT. We attempted once, then couldn’t make it 5 minutes without bugs spray and then it was much more manageable with it. The bugs on this trail are vicious! After the bugs, again it is beautiful. Only took us roughly 45 minutes and the lookout at the end was gorgeous. Highly recommended as it is easy (with bugs spray), fun and has a great pay off.

An easy half mile with an interesting take on lakes, as the pink coloring defies laws of nature. I tried to looking it up & I still don’t know why it’s pink, but you should try to find that out! Fascinating though, and beautiful to look at.

A fun drive to see so many lakes and grasslands that you wouldn’t normally find at other National Parks in the country. Have an open mind to beauty when it comes to this park, as it comes in many forms, and this drive is spectacular.
