Home to many species of wildlife, this 0.8-mile trail through the Everglades begins at the Royal Palm Visitor Center. The path runs over the sawgrass marsh known as Taylor Slough, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Wildlife visible in the vicinity of the trail includes alligators, turtles, egrets, and the trail’s namesake anhinga, a variety of large water bird. The abundance of wildlife has made the Anhinga one of the most popular trails in the Everglades, and winter is the best time to catch a glimpse of these creatures.
