Beside the beautiful Mahogany and other trees, we saw a baby Barred Owl and other birds as well as an Eastern Rattlesnake. Wonderful area to explore.

This is a really good hike, entirely on a boardwalk, to help visitors understand the biodiversity of the Everglades. We did not know that mahogany trees had been so prevalent in the Everglades.

We stop at Mahogany Hammock to do the short trail through the this forest. Have a look for snails. You will find the at the branches of the trees.

We did a quick hike on this trail as we wanted to get to the Flamingo area. Lots of trees including a very large mahogany, birds, a nice boardwalk trail. We would have enjoyed a little more signage identifying things. along the way.
Nice shaded parking area, easy in and out from main road. Worth a stop. We really enjoyed looking up to see bromeliads and air plants living high in the trees.

I'd never seen a mahogany tree before. Impressive. Worth the short (less than half mile) hike. Also, don't miss the strangler figs or the root systems on several large fallen trees.

Not so much to see after the Anhinga trail but worth the visit. The boardwalk is easy for those with mobility issues.

This short trail through a forest hammock takes you into a tropical forest like something out of the Lost World. Didn't see any dinosaurs but I'm sure their cousins were nearby.

While we did not see the animals and birds like on other trails, this is a great walk among the trees and vegetation.
We enjoyed seeing the very large mahogany trees as well as the peace and quiet of the surrounding area.

FYI - Hammock means cluster of trees... I think if this trail was anywhere else it might end up getting driven by easily. There is a large Mahogany tree here, and a short boardwalk that takes you across the sawgrass to this hammock. Apparently the trees make the soil acidic, deteriorating the limestone around them, thus creating these islands... It is nice that the boardwalks get you closer to some wildlife and out of your car, outside of it being a zoo, they can't force wildlife to be there.
