Very natural, jungle-like park with a firm surface through most of the trails, so it is good for bikes and hikes. There is some history as there are remains of a development that was never completed which makes it more interesting. By doing a few loops, you can get a go ride in and stay away from all the traffic... More

Two things to consider before your visit here: 1. If you're not the sort that likes to take a walk in the woods just for the sake of taking a walk in the woods, don't bother. Of course, that means that you'll miss out on a good third of what makes Key Largo such a neat destination, but there it... More

You may miss this on first pass down the road as they left up the gate that was supposed to be the entrance to a massive condo development so it doesn't look like a state park- thank goodness it is now a wildlife preserve with nice walking paths.

This is primarily a 2 mile walk through a wooded hammock. A few trees are marked but mostly it's a 2/1 mile walk along a wooded gravel/asphalt road. There is a covered picnic area with about 6 to 8 tables. Mosquitoes not a problem but it was January. We tried to to pay our entrance fee but no envelopes to... More

This is an area just off US1 on CR905 where you can go on a self guided 2 mile nature walk to see the flora and fauna of the Florida Hammock forest. We cut our walk short after being quickly devoured by mosquitoes...BRING YOUR BUG SPRAY AND APPLY LIBERALLY!

This was a cool little place we just happened upon. We were interested in checking out Crocodile Lake NWR, but it was closed to the public. The botanical site was awesome. They had the trees marked so you could tell what trees you were looking at. The place was very biker and runner friendly. There were also several species of... More

We really enjoyed our hike through this park. It was going to be a huge development so there are some interesting features that you usually wouldn't see in a State Park, like manholes, street lights, a huge pile of cement rubble with PVC and rebar (still haven't figured this one out). There were a few structures and an odd tunnel.... More

Also known as Dagney Johnson, originally the start of a resort development, that now is a State park, protected and nature is reclaiming. A blessing to have this hard wood forest space, no noise or traffic, doggie friendly, open to the public. There are about 15 plaques identifying the native trees, brochures at the front entrance and a 1 mile... More
