The main attraction of both trails is the chance to see wild flamingoes at Florida Bay. The Flamingo area itself is named after the colorful birds that, due to overhunting, disappeared from the Everglades for decades. Apparently flamingoes never did breed in Florida, though birds from Cuba and the Bahamas traveled here in large numbers until 1902. In recent years small numbers of Florida’s famous pink bird have been spotted in Florida Bay at the end of the 1.7-mile (one way) Snake Bight Trail. Even if the flamingoes are not present, you still have the opportunity for good bird watching at an observation deck overlooking the water. The Rowdy Bend Trail, extending 2.6 miles one way, joins the Snake Bight Trail after following an old roadbed shaded by buttonwoods, then meandering through open coastal prairie. It offers another chance to look for flamingoes on Florida Bay.
