Create an itinerary including Anhinga Trail
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.

  • We had a great ranger tour guide. Really liked his explanation of the ecosystem in the park even though this was not our first visit.

  • Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE experience! The trail is a short distance from the park entrance and is short, convenient, flat walk, mostly on an elevated boardwalk. It's an absolute MUST, is you want to...

  • I only went for a few hours so it’s hard to fully assess it accurately, but I did go through the Homestead entrance which is the main one and checked out some of the key highlights in that area. Note that park entrance is $30 per vehicle but the path is good for seven days so going one day isn’t really gonna make it a sweet deal and this is a Park that you could spend several days in. Of course the highlight of the Everglades is taking in all the natural beauty and creatures and that’s exactly what I did during my visit. Highly recommend taking the popular Anhinga Trail if visiting briefly as it I truly is your best shot at seeing some cool wildlife.
  • If you’re on your way to the keys or staying anywhere near Homestead, make the trip. This place is amazing. Absolutely beautiful and more peaceful than any other place I’ve ever been. It’s almost spiritual. We highly recommend it.
