Very scenic drive through glades and islands. Beautiful views of the ocean and Florida bay

Beautiful drive through the park. Lots of great views. Best done in the winter, very muggy during the summer.

Beautiful short trail thru a mixed forest with mature mahogany trees. Went midday in September, so the wildlife was sparse, they have the sense to hide from the sun.

Just a little wooden boardwalk and dirt trail that goes along the edge of the water onto a jetty. Using the AllTrails map, you can’t go past a certain point, even though the map shows you can. Lots of bugs in early August. Bring bug spray!

don't go off the trail unless you want to get swarmed by mosquitos

have done this trail a couple of times and had an adventure each time. You will want to invest in some rubber boots for the muddy and marshy areas. The beach is a nice natural untouched by human influence beach florida beach

A good trail for kids, since it is completely paved. Not my type of hiking trail, but isn’t bad for tourists.

Trail was nice and alongside a canal, but the bugs were terrible. I would do it again, but definitely later in the year.

Excellent drive. It is very scenic and well worth the trip. We only made it half way as we are saying in Colony Key. We will complete the trip later in the week.

Very short..boardwalk and then a small trail to tge end of the jetty. Nice view of the water.

Starting with open and muddy. Spotting the trail in the middle section is difficult as it goes through close, overgrown trees. The last third is similar to the first with mud. Walking stick and boots highly recommended.

Great walk through a boardwalk with tons of wildlife. We saw lots of gators, birds, fish, huge grasshoppers, and turtles. Look closely in the lillypads and you may see the anhinga bird swimming under water, looking for food. Wear sunscreen and bug spray. Well worth your time!

The first half of this trail is beautiful as there is PLENTY of wildlife. You were for sure see gators! Turtles, fish, birds! Was great. There is a watch tower half way through with a beautiful lookout. Second half is dry land with no shade so make sure you have sunscreen and plenty of water.

This is about all you can do in Biscayne National Park without going out to the rest of the park as it's mostly underwater. You would need to take a ferry to the reefs and other keys as there is no car access. Still this is a nice boardwalk if you want to say that you went to Biscayne, although we will definitely be coming back to snorkel in the future :)

Beautiful trail and very quiet. We were the only one's hiking. We did not go in very far as it was getting late and we did in fact hear a bear grunt in the distance!

Short and easy, beautiful hike. You will see A LOT of wildlife. There's plenty of alligators, crickets, turtles, fish and of course Anhinga's as the name suggests! We went during sundown and the scenery was priceless.

pretty hike thru woods, lots of good in places.

The bugs, especially the mosquitoes, made this a miserable hike. The lake is nice enough, and there is a clearing where you can look at the lake. We also got a brief respite from the mosquitoes there, but knowing that we had to turn around and trek through the bug infested trail to get back to the car detracted from our enjoyment. Overall we are glad we did it, but would never do it again.

why are all the posts about driving a car, this is supposed to be for riding

A nice short walk around the pond. Wading birds typically hang out here and nest in late winter. The path is elevated, well mown grass making it easy to traverse in all seasons.

Very nice trail ! It’s very hot so bring a lot of water but the path is great, very relaxing. The trail ends to a lake. The thing is that you have to go back the same way you came or you can choose to walk on the road but it’s longer and there is absolutely no shade. I recommend though !

The trail is the driest I've seen it all season, but still has 3-4 inches of mud and areas of standing water. Good distance. Birds, crabs, and bugs with lots of animal tracks. Hiking poles/walking stick, boots, and sunscreen suggested.

We have trail rode out from Long Pine (trail head by lake) and taken the forest trails. Solid 10+mile ride and very enjoyable. Wildlife was minimal for the glades but very nice either way. Also the original abandoned ingraham hwy trail head is close to the road that takes you to the nike missle area.....this is the original way to Flamingo. But pack supplies bc no one ever goes that route...unless you venture like I like to ride.
