Nature Trail: Lignumvitae Key Botanical State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"At 16.5 feet above sea level, Lignumvitae Key enjoys one of the highest elevations in the Keys. The 280-acre offshore key in the Gulf of Mexico boasts a virgin tropical forest not found anywhere else in the Keys.

The tropical hammock contains typical West Indian trees, including the endangered lignumvitae, which is said to live a thousand years. Lignumvitae wood is incredibly durable, assumed to outlast steel or bronze thanks to its rich resins."
