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.

The trail is wonderful. The Everglades park rangers give tours and information about the land. The Royal Palm center is unfortunately closed. I did see two alligators one young adult about 5 feet and on the Gumbo Limbo trail I saw 15 foot alligator. I saw many native birds and some turtles. I would definitely go back and explore the other trails in the Everglades.
Wanted to give four stars because we didn't see an alligator! Always love visiting this place, especially when the weather is nice. Was able to unexpectedly tour the Nike Missile site that is in the Park as well...make sure you have time to see this piece of history, check the hours.
