This is next to the Anhinga trail and in contrast, is a shady walk through the woods. The highlight for us was the mom owl feeding her baby at the head of the trail. If there is a ranger there, ask them to point them...More

If you already did the Anhinga Trail, you might as well do this since it's right beside it. It's a short shaded trail and if your intent is to see animals, just be prepared that you probably won't see any. It's a good recharge walk...More

Nice little path to leisurely stroll through the woods. They have some plaques educating about the plant life. Didn't see any wildlife aside from Geckos. Peaceful and quiet trail.

Good short walk. Saw some small lizards and owl. Did not experience any mosquitos. Pretty canopies. Only takes about fifteen minutes.

This trail was a contrast to the boardwalk. Although we didn't see any wildlife it was interesting to see another type of habitat. More mosquitos through here due to the humid conditions.

Don't get me wrong, this is a fine hike. It's a good place to see the Gumbo Limo tree and several other species of trees and plants. Also it's a short hike . I just like the Mahogany Hammock Area better.

What had been a very wonderful beginning to our day in the Everglades we were eaten alive by mosquitos within 10 minutes of entering. This trail is otherwise easy to manage but we didn't see any wild life. Other trail was gorgeous with lots to...More
