Markham County Park is on the very edge of the Everglades.

Special thanks to Elton  John for composing Crocodile Rock, a very appropriate song for a page on the Everglades.

From the park, it is but a short hike to the Everglades over a dam spanning a canal. One you reach the top of the levee you have a view of the "River of Grass" as far as the eye can see. It is dotted with hammocks, higher ground that forms islands and is frequently a place where trees can grow.
