There is an information center where you can get advice on where you want to walk in terms of what you want to see. We took one of the trails and it was great, level so everyone could walk and lots of birds for the photographer in the group. There were other paths we would love to go back and take. No alligators this trip, but I'm told they have quite a few. Later in the season, you might need bug repellent. Take some water if you are going to walk a long distance and wear comfortable walking clothes.
