Very nice attraction.

Nice easy walk. Lots of varied wildlife. Gators, birds, turtles, fish and snakes. Great way to spend a hour or so.

Tons of wildlife. Short easy walk with big payoff. So much to see. Take water and a camera. You can't resist taking pictures.

When you promise a 6 year old that you are going to show him some alligators, you better produce.......well, you won't be disappointed in the choice when you take him on the Anhinga trail. Nice easy trail with benches for the needed walkers......

A great place to see birds and gators. At the right time of the year, you can see a large group of gators each day at the far end of the boardwalk trail. We were there on Feb. 13 and 15 and saw a group of 30-40 each day!

Even if you aren't an experienced naturalist, you can still see a lot of wildlife on this trail. You simply can't miss seeing the gators, birds, and fish on both sides of the trail. We went on the ranger-led walk and really enjoyed it. If you don't have much time in the Everglades, don't miss this!

As listed by others we saw lots of alligators, birds, turtles, and fish. As senior citizens we were able to use our national park pass and enter for free. Also a hint on restrooms: Stop at the Edward Coe Visitor Center which is 4 miles/ and 8 minute drive from the Anhinga Trail. Has great restrooms and water available.Anhinga Trail... More

This trail at the Royal Palm area of Everglades National Park is a great place to see the wildlife of the area close up, but from the safety of a boardwalk. We saw a dozen large Alligators, nesting Anhingas, Ibis, a variety of heron and egrets, Florida Gar, Smallmouth Bass, Oscars, large turtles, and more.

Everglades National Park is one of the country's "crown jewels". Nowhere else can you see crocodiles and alligators in the same location.
