This was a very pretty trail that takes you into the woods but we did not see any wildlife aside from some geckos.

We did the Pineland Trail on our dat to Pay-hay-okee overlook. The walk was pleasant. A forest with different kinds trees. Most are pine trees.

Also a nice, easy, smaller trail. There is an information hut at the beginning and plaques along the trail. Easy trail with diverse plant life.

Here's a little story. I remember back in 2008, when I came to the United States for the first time (it was an Orlando-Miami-Key West trip), and I had no hiking/outdoor experience, I tried to complete this simple 0.4-mile loop. This was in September. We literally had to run back to our car because we got stalked by mosquitoes. I swore back then that if I were ever back in the Everglades, I would come prepared. And here I was, a full 11 years later. Covered in bug repellent, I did this simple but hauntingly beautiful loop in about 15 minutes. The - obviously flat and well maintained - trail winds through a pine forest with Sabal minor undergrowth, a quintessential biotope of the South. I'm glad I conquered it (and the mosquitoes) this time.

This is a nice trail with shade, a rare amenity in the Everglades. The trail is long but we just walked about 3 miles in and made a U turn and returned to our car. Not much wildlife to be seen compared with other shorter walks in the Everglades, but this is a nice trail for exercise.

This is a stop on the road to Flamingo and is worth a 1/2 hour. It’s a completely different ecosystem and although there are no alligators there are several different plant species and an area where you can see different types of tree snails which you don’t see in other areas. Definitely worth a stop. We spent about 1/2 hour exploring the area - if you just quickly walk through the paved trail area you will miss many things so walk slow and look at the trees.

Did the short hike and it was nice but didn't see any wildlife or birds. We went mid-day so maybe it was just the wrong time.

Well maintained trail.

Would go again on next visit to see if its better.

Judging by some of the other reviews I think the writers have confused the Pineland Trail with Anhinga at Royal Palms. There is nb water here so it is unlikely you would see any alligators. We did see two interesting lizards, first a Brown Anole then a Green Anole, which are native to this area. We also saw giant snails on the pine trees. If you have 30 minutes I think this trail is interesting but if you are short on time, focus on the Anhinga trail where the wildlife is more varied and abundant.

Pinelands trail isn’t too exciting at first glance, compare to Anhinga trail. The fauna isn’t lavish; you mostly come here to see the dense pine forest and fight with the mosquitos. Luckily we only heard and read about them, and despite the lack of mosquito repellent and long sleeve cloth, we haven’t seen any. This was our lucky day, since first I found a Brown Anole and later a Green Anole, the only anole species native to Florida, and hard to see it already, because of the competition from the hardy and prolific brown anoles. It was sitting on a leaf, like an emerald green jewel. We both were interested in each other, looked at each other, and he politely waited till I took a photo of him, and after disappeared without a goodbye. There were jewel snails on the trees, and the temperature was noticeably more refreshing than the other places in the National Park. It’s a short paved path, usually without visitors. Interesting, but wouldn’t be my first recommendation.

This is a different trail than your average Everglades. It has a lot of the endangered pine trees and it is interesting to see snails and some wood birds. Easy to walk
