    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "NOTE: Carl Ross Key campsite is currently closed to overnight camping and only available for day use. This excursion will take you to Little Rabbit Key and return to Flamingo. You will paddle approximately 36.0 miles on this multiday adventure as you head west and circle around several islands and head to Sandy and Carl Ross Keys.

    This area, a significant nesting area for roseate spoonbills, was heavily damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma. After checking with the park ranger regarding tide, weather, etc., and obtaining overnight permits, launch from Flamingo. Paddle southwest and head for Bradley Key. Stay to the southeast of the tip of Bradley Key; you will be paddling beyond here to reach First National Bank. The water will be shallow until you pass the key."
