Ready for a hands-on experience of the River of Grass?

With only the sound of the wind and your footsteps, explore a side of the Everglades that most people never see by getting your feet wet in an off-trail hike. Slough slogging gives you a hands-on view of the River of Grass and reveals the hidden world of a cypress dome. Join a Ranger on one of our slough slogs for a guided walk into this fascinating environment.

All participants must bring the following:

- Water
- Sturdy close toed, lace-up shoes
- Long Pants

The following items are suggested:

- Sunscreen
- Long sleeve shirt
- Insect repellent
- Binoculars
- Snacks

*This program is limited to 15 participants. To sign up or for additional information, visit the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center or call 305-242-7700. Participants must be 12 years of age or older.

Slogs are scheduled this season for Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays at 2pm. Reservations required.

Tropical Hardwood Hammock

The “high and dry” tree islands of the Everglades are called tropical hardwood hammocks. The park marks a significant edge of the northern limits of many subtropical plants and the southern limits of many temperate plants. This provides quite a unique and beautiful landscape.
