We walked along the Gumbo Limbo trail before going on the Anhinga ranger walk. The trail is in the shade, and very very short

If you’re short on time I WOULD SKIP THIS TRAIL. It’s just a little walk in the jungle. There’s little to see. It’s a great spot to get a bunch of mosquito bites.

If you only do one of the two trails at this location, do the Anhinga, more wildlife to see. The plus for Gumbo Limbo though is that you're in the shade. Also beware of the vultures here damaging your car.

The Gumbo Limbo trail is a short loop. We elected to take this trail because we visited on a warm day. Unlike most of the Everglades, which is open sawgrass, the Gumbo Limbo trail winds through the trees and is shaded. However, there were mosquitos. The trail was not far from the visitor center and there was ample parking.

This was a great walk to really see the plants & habitants of the area. We were able to see many butterflies, dragonfly, lizards and spiders. The plants, trees & flowers were also great to look at.

This is a really pretty trail with cool little ponds going back into the woods, but the only downside was that we couldn't find any wildlife.

The main reason to complete this hike is to see the contrast between this densely-wooded section of the Everglades and the open-air, waterlogged Anhinga Trail that's immediately adjacent. Other than this contrast, it's a walk through a bunch of trees with nothing especially notable. Fortunately, it takes less than 15 minutes to complete.

This was a pretty easy walk through the woods. You get a good idea of what the rest of the park is like and see many of the trees/plants up close.

This was little more than a short walk through the woods. The key points of interest that still make it worth doing are (1) the contrast with the Anhinga Trail, which is just a few hundred yards away. It helps to understand just how diverse the Everglades are. And (2) the interpretive signs introduced the gumbo limbo tree to us, which is strikingly different in appearance from other trees.

We did the Gumbo Limbo trail after walking the Anhinga Trail. It was interesting how much cooler it was beneath the tropical foliage, though the mosquitoes were eager to feast on us.

We saw lots of little lizards, but no larger critters.
