Anhinga Trail, Everglades National Park

Enjoy an easy hike and observe the wildlife on Anhinga Trail, a boardwalk over Taylor Slough that is 6 km (4 mi) from the Everglades National Park entrance. Walk out 600 m (0.4 miles) over a sawgrass marsh area. From the boardwalk, visitors can often see many different Everglades species, from local birds to large reptiles, such as alligators. The trail is wheelchair-accessible, but cycling is not allowed. Plan my trip to Everglades National Park with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Very nice secure park where you can find a passable wooden that allows to pass over the marsh. Unfortunately we didn't see a single alligator, indeed a group of schoolchildren followed us very closely and made so much noise that all the animals were hiding. We only saw a few birds. We did the same walk at dusk very beautiful images and some eyes of Alligators that lit up in the light of the flashlights... but a lot of mosquitoes when we had none during the day.
