Go Slough Slogging in Everglades National Park

There are lots of ways to experience Everglades National Park – airboat rides, hiking, kayaking, and birdwatch just to name a few. But the most adventurous might be one of the ranger-led slough slogs.

Life Style

You’ll join a National Park Ranger and hike straight into the marshy Everglades and through one of the park’s Cyprus domes. Walking in water up to your knees in Southern Florida probably sounds like a recipe for an alligator attack, but this is a perfectly safe activity and truly one of the coolest things you can do in Florida.

If you want to join a slough slog, you’ll need to sign up in advance at the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center or by calling 305-242-7700. Group sizes are limited to 12 people so make sure you plan ahead.
