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.

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:
