Christian Point Trail
Trail Length: 1.8 miles (2.9 km) one way

Trail Description: Wander along a rustic path through a wide diversity of habitats. The trail begins in dense mangroves and buttonwoods full of bromeliads, or airplants. Next, investigate the unusual, salt-loving vegetation of open coastal prairie. Dead buttonwood snags interrupt these expanses that were shaped by hurricanes. Finally, you'll end up along the shore of Snake Bight, best viewed near high tide.
Directions to Trail: One mile (2 km) north of the Flamingo Visitor Center on the main park road.
