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:
- Sturdy close toed, lace-up shoes
- Long Pants
The following items are suggested:
