There are a few trees labeled with names. The blacktop last for 1/4 mile then there is a good path for the rest of the 2 loops. There is another more primitive trail also. We saw a snake, great igret, 3 squirrels and iguana. There is a picnic table and port-a-potty.

Missed the entrance, not much parking. Nice walk on wide paths, but the building that was part of the old condo development is kind of creepy. Also not thrilled with the overly large spider's web and accompanying big spider across the path was a little intimidating. If you're interested in botany you'll probably like it-references provided in a little pamphlet... More

The flora, fauna, animals of the Keys juxtaposed with the remains of the Condo development creates an interesting mix......................just a leisurely walk with half created stone walls here and there. Relaxing certainly, not exciting though.

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
