Great hiking, biking, and even a guided tour if desired. Tons of trails and tons of wildlife from fish, alligators, herons, hawks, and ibis. Very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable park staff who show you all the options of the park.

Wonderful place in Everglades National Park to see natural Florida. Wildlife at it's best. If you go in the summertime, take mosquito spray!
