We went in January. The weather was gloomy and the trail's only real issue at that time of year were the huge ant mounds. I was thankful I wore proper hiking boots, because the mud was serious, and I imagine it's only worse in summer. The trail starts out with a boardwalk, from which we were able to see a smaller, wild alligator. Apparently a lot more show their faces at different times of the year. We also decided to get out and walk a lot of the tour that is meant to be done inside your vehicle. There were a lot of great birding opportunities, if you're into that sort of thing. Wouldn't recommend for people who hike for adventure's sake, though.
