This is not really a "park" but was a failed development, so there is an asphalt loop that you can walk around. There are some signs on the trees, but many have nothing. It's a pleasant walk, about 1 mile for the half loop, and...More

Hikers, this is probably your best bet for an extended walk. We really enjoyed exploring the park's trail system. Lovely.

Get outside and walk around in the natural habitat of the keys. Yes, there will be mosquitoes. No you will not be hand held through the tours. Yes, you may need to search for info about the place. Yes, you may get your feet dirty.
