At only 1/2 mile round trip this walk viewing gumbo-limbo trees, air plants, nurse logs, and strangler figs is easy to squeeze in if you're making your way back from Flamingo. another interesting natural occurrence to be found here are solution holes. The limestone bedrock is eaten away by a mixture of acids from decaying leaves and rainwater. The sinking... More

This was a short trail to walk. We didn't see any wildlife. The trees are nice. Wouldn't bother visiting again. It wasn't out of the way so didn't mind stopping.

This is a short hike and us scenic but if you are short on time thus is one to miss. The signs say you might see owls, but we didn't see any.

Beautiful old growth mahogany trees. It's quite shady so it's a nice respite from the sun. Short easy walk and again a very different perspective of the Everglades.

This is a place to visit if you like nature especially large Mahogany trees. If you have kids is not likely the most exciting stuff for them but it is beautiful. I must admit I am a tree farmer so this might be more to my liking than others.

This is an amazing piece of preserved nature. It definitely worth a visit! Only negative thing to say about Mahogany Hammock are litters all around the trail. But it reflects respect of humans for nature.

This trail is more scenic for the trees, not the animals. We did see a snake slithering onto a tree from the walkway but he was very tiny and the only one we saw the whole time. The walk is peaceful and pretty. This trail took about 15 minutes.

My friend and I enjoyed Mahogany Hammock. We went when the mosquitoes were plentiful so had to wear repellent but it was worth it.

I went really early in the morning and was the only one there and this was a nice short walk through a wild and tropical forest. I'm from a higher latitude and this forest reminded me of how much closer you are to the tropics here. This is a nice shady walk without too much heat in the morning, and... More
