Situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indian River Lagoon, the Maritime Hammock is like a very quick trip to a dense jungle. It's a very cool hike mostly under dense foliage but with a couple of spots where the hammock opens up to small...More

Small but packed with birds, butterflies and flora. Its a stroll not a hike and about 1/2 under the canopy of trees. Very nice little diversion from the beach. I parked at Dennys.

Very nice, well worth the effort. Excellent trail with unique things to see along the way. Take a dip in the ocean afterwards across the street.

Make sure to wear lots of bug spray. 2.5 hike, 75% covered hiking. Very very green. Pretty flowers. Tiny parking right off A1A. Hidden gem!

This trail is AWESOME! Nice and quiet with winding trails through the mangroves and natural Florida woods. Plenty of native plants, flowers and trees as well as a wide variety of wildlife! Definitely going back again!

I walked a good 2.5 miles of trail in this park, around both ponds, along the lagoon, through the hammocks. I saw 4 people coming out in a group as I entered. No one else for the next hour and change. Is this place just...More

We tried a number of walking trails in the Melbourne area and this was by far the best. It offered options for shorter or longer walks and was very well marked. There were enough other folks walking the trails to make us feel safe but...More
