Great place to visit to experience Florida's non-touristy natural wildlife. You can choose to bring your own bike, rent a bike, walk, or take a tour on a bus cam to the observation tower. It's great way to get exercise on a perfect Florida day...More

This is a must see, if you are entering everglades. Alligators are everywhere, you Can´t miss them. A lot of the gators can be seen swimming or sunbathing close to the trail so beware. Also lot of cool birds around the trail
