historic site

Tucked away amid the heart of the Marathon shopping district lies a 63-acre tropical oasis of hardwood trees, nature trails and educational displays for adults and children. A slightly elevated patch of land called a hammock where a Bahamian immigrant and his family set up a homestead in the early 20th century. Today, the entire area is owned and managed by the Florida Keys Land and Sea Trust, a private organization working to protect the Keys.

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.
