You park at the entrance here and use the honesty box to pay. It is suggested that you donate$2.50 per person. There are leaflets about the park under the arch to your right as you enter. There is one set of pongy toilets about 100m up the avenue before you embark on one of the loop walks. There is a... More

This is an easy walk through a mostly wooded area. Many of the trees are labeled. I wish that it had taken us to the sea before turning back. Looks like they will close this down for some needed upgrading.

This park is part of the Florida State Park system. The site was supposed to be developed as luxury condos and was instead preserved as the last space with the variety of plants and animals which once were prevalent in the keys. There is a nice nature trail and a choice of a one mile or two mile loop. Nice... More

So we came to the area uninformed. We thought there would be some good beaches around the area to enjoy the water. This was the best that was recommended but not really accessible unless you were shoes. The island is fun, but not a beach island.

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.
