Great warm and breezy walk with a ton of wildlife. I used to walk it 4x a week when it was open. Hopefully the renovations will be done soon!

Nice relaxing walk. Nice vegetation and ocean views are pretty.

This hike is within a private nature preserve with a $15 admission fee. It is probably the best hike in the Keys, which are obviously pretty compact and commercialized. We enjoyed a relaxed stroll and the flora, it also has a few historic structures on the grounds and a bird sanctuary.

The park is more oriented to water activities, so the hiking trails are fairly short. There are opportunities for bird watching & the trails are well shaded with lots of native trees, but the trails are also quite short & pretty uneventful.

I’m sure it’s a nice walk-but be aware it is CLOSED for renovation as of May 2017.

This park was a development project that was shut down by the government because of endangered habitat. The path was the road going in to the neighborhood. Looks like the road was intentionally torn up. Two loops. Long loop seems to always be closed. No park staff.

Nice enough trail for a Monday walk, much damage makes the trail an in and out & increases the total mileage.

This is a fantastic walk over a bride even on the hotest of days, there is a breeze. I recommend it to anyone. This bridge is under renovation for the next 2-3 years.

This trail is close to home so we gave it a try. For anyone out of town visiting the Keys please note that this is the most boring "park" I have ever been to. Park service is often set up (only during Snowbird season) to collect $2.50 to enter the park. The path is paved in some parts but not in others from what appears to be damage to the road and is therefore not wheelchair accesible. With SO MANY beautiful parks in the area, why anyone at all would waste their time driving up to the park is beyond me. Most of the long loop trail is underwater and a CLOSED sign is up to the right of the trail.

lovely trail, lots of wildlife!

Easy, Sandy/watery with amazing wildlife!!

Very easy. Went about halfway and turned around. Saw a sea turtle! Bridge was desperately in need of repair as of oct 2015; sounds like they have closed it for upkeep since then

Nice walk, scenic over the water and historic old 7-Mile Bridge, bike, run or walk BUT you need to know that it is closed as of July 2016, until further notice for repairs!!

It's a nice flat and shaded walk. The long loop cannot be completed without waders because it goes into the water. Then there is the half loop which is beautiful. There is a poisonous tree but just look out for it. I saw no crocodiles. It's very quiet trail and I had to pay 2.50 to walk. Very pretty!

Love this one. If you don't see wildlife walk slower. The forest and water are amazing.

This was a very peaceful trail that I walked with my dog once some stormy February weather passed. We encountered a couple of joggers but otherwise had the whole trail to ourselves. As a solo female (plus aforementioned dog), it seemed a bit remote at times. However, I enjoyed every second of this trail. The signs describing the trees and bushes were informative, and I stopped to read each of them. As an FYI: there is a port-a-potty around 200 yards in, but no water. I will make this trail a part of all my trips to the Keys from now own.

The main trail was closed so I was very disappointed since we drove 50 minutes to do the other two trails that didn't even make a mile.
The two trails that are open are very easy and you can complete both in 15 minutes.

This is a section of the old US1 highway that starts on the west side of Marathon and continues out to Pigeon Key. 4 mile round trip. Parking is available at the start. It runs parallel to the Seven Mile Bridge on the new US1 Highway. Walk or bike out and enjoy the breeze and year round warmth of the Keys.

Easy trail, lovely views.

One of my favorite places with my classmates studying coastal marine ecology. This island is beautiful, and holds so many wonders that go unseen at first glance.

A nice mile loop (you can do it as a 2 mile loop) I did with mom and dad on the way back to Miami from Duck Key. Trees are well identified by tags. Trails, however could have been a little better marked. Nice and easy, flat loop. A handful of picnic tables are at the entrance to the loop, with a few benches around the trail. Very nice walking hike.

We went this past weekend. Gorgeous scenery. Walked to the island. Caught some fish and walked back. Totally awesome family day!! The trail is the old railroad from a hundred years or so ago transformed. In order for this trail to be maintained they are asking for public awareness and help (when you visit the trail, there is no fee). The website to help the trail is saveoldseven.org. We definitely plan on becoming a regular!!!

We rode our bikes to Pigeon Key, a little over 4 miles out and back. The path is not the smoothest on road bikes as it has quite a few cracks and seams.

There are signs that say there is an admission fee to visit Pigeon Key, but we explored the island for over an hour and saw no one collecting money.

We camped for 3 nights in the Bayside camp area, which is only tents and a few cabins. Very quite, during New Year's weekend. Make sure you have strong tent stakes and a mallet because the ground is rock hard. Saw a great variety of birds including herons and egrets, as well as iguanas. Be sure to check out the beaches and nature trails.

Hiked the 7 Mile bridge to Pigeon Key the last 2 mornings. With the breeze it's a nice walk. More to see on the bridge than you might think. Enjoy it before they close it to pedestrians.
