Anhinga Trail, Everglades National Park

4.6
#2 of 151 in Trails in Florida
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.

  • Small but eventful walk in impressive nature. We have seen abundant animals (about 10 alligators, a lot of bird species, fish, turtle, snakes, lizards) in their natural environment. You should take plenty of time to look.

  • This is a MUST and the BEST trail you can find in Everglades. We got to see alligators, crocodiles, different birds, Frogs, and lily pads and different trees. This is fully paved trail so you get to take your strollers all the way. This trail is not stressful and you can get this done within 15-30 minutes of time.
  • Want to see alligators doing what the do best??? This is your chance!!! This trail/boardwalk is a little over a mile long and along it you can see some amazing sites!!! I recommend binoculars! Also a good camera. You will surely see something new on every visit!!!!
