Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park reviews
Good Nature walk with my family. Kids were not over excited. As a parent it was great family time with some exercise and no electronics more »
Great place to hike or bicycle on trails. Needs MORE INTERPRETIVE SIGNS to name the trees & shrubs, and to explain the ecosystem. Also, a couple more trash cans would help control the litter...
The trail is a mix of natural earth and paved path. There are many informational plaques next to the identified tree itself. There is even a beautiful river running along some rocky cliffs, and if you really hike, there are marshy areas full of fiddler crabs. WARNING: Bring bug spray or be eaten alive.
