Our visit was very interesting. We saw alligators and many different species of birds. We saw cypress swamps and mangrove swamps. vast grasslands and beautiful sunsets. I would highly recommend big cypress as a destinations in South Florida.
If you want to see lots of wildlife there are two options here. You can take the tram at one entrance and see lots of birds flying around along with baby alligators. The tram was $20 a person and well worth it.

This environment is different from what many of us are accustomed to. There’s a certain beauty in this swampy preserve. Explore this freshwater swamp by meandering around the boardwalks that give you a closer view. In doing so, there’s a certain come that comes over...More
The trail is actually behind what appears to be a home on the north side of the road. Just park and go. One portapotty at the entrance. Walk to the end to find a pair of gators in their swimming hole. Was about a 20...More

The 2 are neighbors. You should take 41, as recommended by the others. Along the route, there are boardwalk trails, the tram tours at shark valley, or bike rentals for the 15 mile loop at shark valley. There are ranger led hikes into the swamp at Big Cypress, or you can venture out yourself along the well marked Florida Trail extending north or south. Everglades Ntl Park is huge and has 4 entrances. You cannot go to all of them in 1 day, so choose just one.
