Description

Take this short, paved path from the Royal Palm Visitor Center out through a classic Everglades' sawgrass marsh to view abundant wildlife, including alligators, anhingas, turtles, egrets, herons, as well as numerous other bird species.

This trail is a real treat during the winter, when wildlife becomes more abundant in this area.

Needless to say, be sure to bring your camera along as you'll have plenty of opportunity for great wildlife photography!
