Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail...there are currently 60 miles of trails, but the completion is still a ways off. The vision is to have a continuous trail between the keys from Key Largo to Key West. Right now there are bits and pieces of bike trails here and there. Some of the trails require bicycle riders to cross the bridges between the keys using only the bridge shoulder, which is not safe. I rode the Overseas Highway 1 right outside our park for a little bit to get to the trail nearest our RV park. From there, it was a nice long ride towards Curry Hammock State Park and beyond. I rode about 9 miles today out and back. The trail has much shrubbery, palms and some trees along so it is partially shaded. There are breaks in the foliage so you can see protected areas, swampy marshes and brackish waters with baby mangroves areas developing.
