"The trailhead is located next to the visitor center. This is one of the most popular trails in all of Everglades National Park, so bring your camera, binoculars, and field guides. This is is also where visitors often get their very first look at an American alligator in its natural habitat, and it is a very popular birding destination as well. The fish, in turn, attract birds, alligators, river otters, and other animals that come to feast on the bounty. There is usually an abundance of birds along the trail, and most can be viewed and photographed at close range because they are accustomed to pedestrians. Double-crested cormorants, black vultures, and the trademark anhingas often perch on the low fence adjacent to the trail, allowing viewing at just a few feet away. Wood storks, herons, egrets, and moorhens are common sights."
