Take a Stroll on the Pa-Hay-Okee Overlook Trail

Pa-hay-okee Trailhead

Boardwalk, mangroves, everglades, lookout tower, and wildlife. What more could you want? Short, easy, and highly rewarding hike that is ideal for just about anyone.

Park at the trailhead and hop onto the boardwalk trail. Its very short--just 0.2 miles, so take your time to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. Partway through the hike there is a lookout tower which is great for getting a high vantage point to enjoy the landscape from.

Be aware of wildlife around you and respectful of the space you share with them.

Great Around Sunset

This is a great place to be around sunset. Also saw some barred owls last time I was there.

Walk the Mahogany Hammock Trail in Everglades NP

Located a short drive off the main drag to the Flamingo Visitor Centre (and only a few hours from Miami) this short boardwalk through a lush Mahogany and Gumbo-Limbo plants is an easy walk for famili.

Hike Ahinga Trail

The Everglades National Park is a superb spot for viewing wading birds and alligators off an easy paved path. There are a number of observation decks along the way, off of the main path.
