Wow! What an experience! I learned so much from enthusiastic and informative Ranger Olivia (she was a FABULOUS guide!) during our walk through the water. It was so different to see the flora and fauna while standing in the wetlands. The highlight was observing the alligator hole (sans the alligator) and then actually seeing an alligator in a different area on our way out of the wetlands.

According to the NPS website, this is only offered by request, but in fact, we spoke with the rangers at the Ernest Coe Visitor's Center and it is available every day, and it is totally free! This was one of the most unique and incredible experiences we had in our 4 days at the park, and I highly recommend it! You'll need to be prepared with shoes that can get wet/dirty and pants that dry quick, but otherwise, you just walk into the water and it feels magical, exploring parts of the Everglades most people never see or experience.

This is a walking place but there is a motor tram for those who don't need to linger in places of their interest. During the winter, (Jan) there are no bugs and plenty of gators and birds to photograph. Enjoyed it a lot.

This is really nice place to see gators, snakes, and egrets, herons , etc. The boardwalk and paved pathway can make it easy to view or you can head out across the slough. Warning this can be hot and buggy at times.

We were in town for an event that recommended we do a slough slog and we found this FREE slog offered by the NPS. The only associated cost is the park entrance fee but I already had a National Parks pass so we were set.

This was an amazing experience with Ranger Gustavo Lopez and I would have been wiling to pay for it. We were a large group but he stopped to take the time to explain everything we were seeing, to answer questions and make sure that we were all safe and were finding the large holes.

I would definitely make sure to have a change of clothes. Depending on the water levels you are mid-thigh to chest deep in the water. Make sure that you have on shoes that you can tie tightly so that you do not lose them.

We will do this slog every time we visit the Everglades.

This vast expanse of grasses and dwarf cypress is quite amazing. We enjoyed the walking and found lots of opportunities for photography . Wildlife was plentiful but given it was the middle of summer perhaps not as much as others have described , the upside was that crowds were non existent- we had many places to ourselves.

Amazing birds and alligators galore. I cannot imagine anyone could travel the Slough and not see unlimited wildlife, flora and fauna. I loved it in the poring rain. I would have to say, must see!

We had a great time. I would recommend a hat, sunscreen, water and snacks. You may not see an alligator, but I would be prepared.
