Very nice boardwalk and area but no gators spotted. The area is very pretty and it’s an easy walk. We saw some birds and a huge grasshopper. I was concerned about mosquitos as I didn’t have bug spray but no problems.
It is worth stopping off for the walk just to stretch your legs. The paths are well set out and accessible to all. We saw loads of large orange grasshoppers and numerous dragonfly.
Harder to spot were the alligators and turtles but we did see...More
We entered the Everglades National Park via the Ernest Coe visitor centre and a helpful guide pointed us in the direction of several trails including the Anhinga Trail.
Very easy with boardwalk all the way round. Walk is c30 mins depending on how fast you...More
Overall, a nice boardwalk trail that one could see all the native wildlife. Saw a couple gators swimming, some black bass, turtles, cranes, etc. nice leisurely walk around the burrow pit area. Definitely the best part of the Everglades Park.
We went on the hour long ranger led tour. Park Ranger Elizabeth was fantastic, explaining the importance of the different ecosystems and the history and diversity of the landscape. She was really funny too! Not sure if it's worth it without the guide as it...More
The Anhinga Trail is a very interesting boardwalk with classic Everglades views and a lot of wildlife, a must-see. You are guaranteed to see alligators. I went in the evening and again in the morning. There were turtles, fish, anhingas, egrets, and all kinds of...More
A lovely walk on a boardwalk, mostly not shaded so be smart with hats and water. At our time there there were giant grasshoppers, tons of birds, alligators and turtles and fish. We only had to walk about 20 yards before there was a very...More
Visited in July 2017, did the full trial by bicylce. I mainly share this review to warn people. Last year we came here and saw other tourists arrive at noon when we were leaving, going out into the full sun with children etc. If you...More
In spending a few hours in the late afternoon of a March Saturday in Everglades National Park, my wife and I drove mostly empty roads and stopped at a few trails with maybe a dozen other people in various parts of their visit (some leaving...More
The trail is actually an extended boardwalk through a swampy area. There are lots of plants which harbor nice flowers and birds (even the odd butterfly). Walking on the boardwalk, we got great views of the swamp and the life within it. Saw a number...More

There is basically only one entrance to Everglades. The park is expensive ,the Anhinga trail is near the entrance near Homestead you might not want to drive further into park. The big cypress preserve has a free visitor center and birds and alligators. You will have to check google maps if the drive is worth saving the Everglades park entrance. If your a senior citizen and a us resident and plan to see lots of parks in your lifetime a senior pass if good value and last until you die. A yearly pass is only good for 12 months and covers non residents and non seniors
