If you are looking for a good area for sunrise over the dwarf cypress this is the spot. The elevated boardwalk provides excellent views of the habitat. Best views of the sunrise are on the access road.

We found this to be the best place to get a sense of the immense "river of grass" that comprises a large portion of the Everglades. While visible along the Tamiami Trail, this stop allows a quiet opportunity to really appreciate the nature of the...More

This walk is on a board walk above the sawgrass and water. The overlook gives you a sense of how big the "River of Grass" is. We were there on a beautiful sunny day.
