Hammock Walk Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"For most visitors, the Keys begin with their arrival in Key Largo via U.S. Highway 1. However, there is another way into the Keys via Card Sound Road, which will deliver you to this little known but ecologically important Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park.
Located on the site of a failed tourist resort, the 2,500-acre park contains the largest contiguous tract of subtropical West Indian hardwood hammock remaining in the United States. With more than eighty species, this small park contains a greater diversity of trees than some entire states. A self-guided walk takes you past species rarely seen outside the Caribbean, including forty-four protected plants and animals such as the Schaus swallowtail butterfly and Key Largo wood rat."
