Is there any swimming in Florida that not a lot of people know about? Or hiking trails in miami Florida?Posted By: Jeff Sherman // Category: Hiking
I just moved to Miami Florida and I love nature and want to know is there any swimming holes that not a lot of people know about that you would need to hike to? Or any hiking trails? I love going hiking to places where There is not a lot of people and any other places that not a lot of people know about. It might make no sense but someone please help me!(: thank you so much.
I know of no swimming holes. Even if I did, I would never use them because of large carnivorous reptiles that may be lurking.
Hiking is a different story. Taking into consideration that we’re in a very urban area in Miami-Dade and Broward, there are several city and county parks that have hiking trails, each with an abundance of local flora and fauna. Getting further away from the urban area, Jonathan Dickinson Park near Jupiter is wide open for hiking. West of Miami is Shark Valley, which has a great walking/biking trail, but I would do it only in late winter/very early spring. I know that the levees that run along the western canals are good spots for hiking.
No doubt you’ll get better advice if you hook up with one of the local hiking clubs in the area…
