"Hike or bike along an elevated trail through mangrove and coastal strand habitat to a wood overlook near the shoreline of Snake Bight.
The trailhead is located on the south side of the main park road between West Lake and Rowdy Bend and is marked with signage. The Snake Bight Trail overlook is a favorite among birders who want to view shorebirds, black skimmers, egrets, herons, roseate spoonbills, white pelicans (winter–spring), brown pelicans (all year), ospreys, bald eagles, and even greater flamingos that migrate to this area in winter. Binoculars are a must and spotting scopes are a plus. If you do not own a spotting scope, there are often birders there that do, and they never mind sharing."
