“Nice walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

This is a historic bridge, very scenic to walk out on. They are raising money to preserve it, I hope they are successful.

“A long bridge”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Nothing special..offers a nice view of the bay. It connects Marathon FL with points south to Key West. Just a long stretch over water.

“Good nature walk!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We enjoyed the sunshine, breezes, watching the boat traffic and the wildlife. On our walk out to Pigeon Key we saw a very large ray, 3 sea turtles, a couple of large fish and a school of smaller ones. A word of caution to those who jog: There are black rubber circles along the way that used to hold milemarker posts. A man who jogged past us tripped on one of those and bumped his head on one of the lane dividers -- got a pretty nasty gash and other scrapes. Watch out for uneven surface and you'll have a great time!

“Can't believe that this was built in 1909-1912 - and without computers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Henry Flagler had this built over 100 years ago to enable his railroad to terminate in Key West. While basically destroyed in a hurricane in 1935, it was used until the early 1980's as "the road to Mile 0." Easily visible from Overseas Highway (aka US Route 1), it inspires thoughts of bygone days and American ingenuity - when engineers worked with draft paper, #6 pencils, and hand-held surveying tools. While the northern end is still accessable to walkers and fishermen, most of it continues to deteriorate with little hope of rescue due to lack of funding. Seven miles in length, most of it across open waters, is an amazing sight, which you can't miss if driving to Key West!

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We stayed in Marathon and road over the Seven Mile Bridge in the morning so we had no traffic. It was an awesome ride, fantastic views of the water from both sides. Definitely worth the drive!
