The highlight of this easy trail of about 1 km is to see the red Mahogany trees and a very high chance to see woodpeckers as well. Very nice

This is another short (15 minute) stop along the road down to the Flamingo Visitor Center. It's not a must see like Anhinga, but it does break up the drive and you have another chance to see a different side of the Everglades.

This is a boardwalk over swampy Water and mangroves. We started it but did not want to go too deep as we did not have mosquito spray.

This is a pretty easy walk that is great for kids to stretch their legs while driving through the park. Many informative signs along the path to let you know what you're looking at. Beautiful scenery along the way. It was a chilly January day...More
