Gumbo Limbo Trail

Everglades National Park

The Gumbo Limbo Trail leaves from the Royal Palm Visitor's Center and loops through a dense jungle hammock of Gumbo Limbo Trees. Also called the 'tourist tree' due to its red flaky bark and underskin, the Gumbo Limbo is fast growing and quite tolerant to salt and calcareous soils. The two largest Gumbo Limbo Trees in America are located in Key West, Florida and Captiva Island, Florida respectively.
