The roadway to the trail was semi-flooded & made me nervous driving through it. The walkway entrance & exit also was flooded, past your ankles, so we had to to take off our shoes. It was a short walk with a nice overlook. We enjoyed...More

Well paved trail was easy to negotiate and short. Go through the accessible side, there is a gentle uphill grade, and an overlook with a marvelous view of the slough. More birds and flowers were visible here. Take the steps down and the whole walk...More

This short trail is worth a quick stop. It's a boardwalk to an elevated deck overlooking the river of grass. Look in the woods by the overlook to see if the owl is there. It was pretty cool to see the owl so close; he...More

We rolled into Everglades National Park after taking most of the day to drive up from Key West, and after stopping at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center, we drove out to the Pa-Hay-Okee trail for our first walk. It's a short loop over a...More

The park is so full of wonderful trails that this one is too short and with hardly no interest. Probably because it was the dry season and you could see anything from the hide. Probably worthy in the wet season

This a short trail about a 45 minute drive from the visitor center. There is a high overlook that gives you the view to see the reason this place is called the Everglades. Be sure to bring a camera.

Walk on boardwalks to overlook, nice view, easy walking. The whole trail is only about 1/4 mile. Stop on your way to or from Flamingo

The boardwalk was a nice break from driving, but we werent't lucky enough to see anything else than lizards and grasshoppers.
