Shark Valley, Everglades National Park

4.2
#1 of 54 in Trails in Florida
Shark Valley offers an opportunity to explore America's marshlands using a paved road, a limestone trail, and a boardwalk. Take a self-guided tour through the sawgrass slough and tropical hardwood forests. As a part of Everglades National Park, the 24 km (15 mi) trail winds through alligator territory and is also home to turtles, deer, and other wildlife. Halfway along the path, climb the observation tower to view the valley's panorama. You'll find bicycles for rent and tram tours available at the site as well. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Everglades National Park fast, fun, and easy.
