Kayaking here is the best!

I love kayaking here. This park is very clean and inviting. The mangrove-lined "canals" take you through the park and make you feel like you're in a really cool adventure show.

This is a fun place to walk along the inlet. Has many trails. I saw many cars but almost no people. It looks like they do a brisk business in kayaks near the entrance.

This place is too much for words. Its beautiful and has my favorite MTB trails around my area. Beaches, campgrounds, cabins for rent and a fully functional bike shop. They offer midnight kayak full moon tours which are nice. Kayaking and SUP boarding along with Canoeing. Anyone who visits will have a blast. A little for everyone.

Great bike trails for all levels. This park offers some of the better trails in the Miami area. It's a true experience in a south Florida habitat. A must do if your into bike trails.

We went to this place almost by mistake and it turned out to be great! There is kayaking, biking, trails and more! We did the kayak and it was so cool! Its so quiet and the water so still ! There are manatees and according to the map you might be able to see dolphins. Make sure you get there... More

Oleta is in the middle of Miami and just the fact that one can go on such a pleasent kajayaking tour in the middle of a large city makes it worthwhile for days where you have planned to be in the city but likes to be outdoor
