Our park's trails allow you to explore a diversity of habitats. It is essential to bring plenty of water and stay aware of changing weather conditions. If you hear thunder or see lightning, seek cover immediately.
Insects, including mosquitoes and a variety of biting flies, may be present year-round, and severe in the hot, humid summer months. Be prepared for insects, and often intense sun, with hats, long sleeves and pants, sunscreen and insect repellent.
A wide array of land trails offer visitors opportunities for leisurely walks, extended hikes and bicycle treks. Check out the links below to download hiking and bicycling brochures. Flamingo and Pine Island trails are accessible from the main entrance of the park in Homestead Florida, while the Shark Valley trail is closer to Miami off of U.S. 41.
