Cape Florida Nature Trail. Key Biscayne, United States
Note

At Cape Florida State Park, the 1.5 mile nature trail loop bisects the natural areas of the park between the lighthouse and marina and shows you views of Stiltsville in Biscayne Bay.

At the tip of Key Biscayne, Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is one of the busiest parks in South Florida. Large crowds flock here for the excellent beaches, more scenic than those in neighboring Miami. The historic Cape Florida Lighthouse towers over much of the activity, and a walk along the Biscayne Bay waterfront will provide a panorama of Stiltsville, a funky collection of above-the-water shacks in the bay shallows. Lesser known, however, is the nature trail that bisects the natural areas of the park between the lighthouse and marina. Walk this 1.5-mile loop to learn a little more about Key Biscayne.
