Judging by some of the other reviews I think the writers have confused the Pineland Trail with Anhinga at Royal Palms. There is nb water here so it is unlikely you would see any alligators. We did see two interesting lizards, first a Brown Anole...More

Pinelands trail isn’t too exciting at first glance, compare to Anhinga trail. The fauna isn’t lavish; you mostly come here to see the dense pine forest and fight with the mosquitos. Luckily we only heard and read about them, and despite the lack of mosquito...More

This is a different trail than your average Everglades. It has a lot of the endangered pine trees and it is interesting to see snails and some wood birds. Easy to walk

The mosquitoes will suck the blood out of you. We put mosquito repellent but it didn't help. This trail is very short, I will assure you that you can finish it very quickly. Believe me the mosquitoes will motivate you to move fast. I carry...More

This is a short paved .4 mile trail that takes you through Slash Pine community and then into a more forested and shadier Hammock. Many informative plaques along the way to help you learn about this unique ecosystem. No bathrooms at this location.

There is a small parking lot for this trail (5 spaces). It's an easy, flat paved trail of 0.4 mi/650 m. We visited around 11am on a Monday in March, and it was completely empty - we were the only people on the trail. Although...More

Pinelands Trail is a half-mile paved trail through a pinelands ecosystem. Unlike much of the Everglades, this area is heavily forested and dry. So you won't see alligators here and you're more likely to hear than see birds. But it's a nice easy hike to...More

The first time I walked this path was to look for the Linguus tree snails. Found a few but not as numerous as in Big Cypress. Was pleasantly surprised by the habitat photography opportunities. It is also good on foggy mornings.
