“a throwback to the keys before they were developed”
Once slated to become a condominium development, this park contains one of the largest tracts of West Indian tropical hardwood hammock in the United States. The park is home to 84 protected species of plants and animals, including wild cotton, mahogany mistletoe and the American crocodile. Exploring the park´s trails gives visitors a chance to see some of these rare species of plants and animals. Over six miles of nature trails provide a wealth of opportunities for birdwatchers and photographers. Most of the park´s trails are paved and accessible to both bicycles and wheelchairs. Signs along a self-guided nature trail provide information about the park´s ecosystem and wildlife. Ranger-guided tours are also available.
Nice easy walk in the shade of some beautiful trees. We did the half loop with our six year old and it was a easy and scenic
stroll. We all enjoyed getting a chance to stretch our legs on our way to Key West. Parents: the half loop is very stroller and bicycle friendly (I didn't do the full so can't speak to it) plus there is a bathroom just past the entrance.
