Biscayne National Park

Hiking Trails in Biscayne

As Biscayne National Park is almost entirely underwater, there is not much in the way of hiking trails to choose from. However, a couple of short walks can be found.

Hiking distances given below are total, roundtrip distances unless otherwise stated. Difficulties are only a general guideline, for an adult in good condition, and do not take into account trail length.

Boca Chita Key

  • Trail Length: 0.5 mile loop
  • Trail Difficulty: Easy
  • Trail Traffic: Light
  • Finding the Trailhead: On Boca Chita Key; a boat is required to reach the island.

The Hike: This trail is a short loop around the part of Boca Chita Key away from the campground and dock. It leads through the vegetation, at times providing good views of the coastline.

Convoy Point

  • Trail Length: 0.6 miles out and back
  • Trail Difficulty: Easy
  • Trail Traffic: Medium
  • Finding the Trailhead: Behind the Dante Fascell Visitor Center

The Hike: This short walk is the only real trail opportunity on the mainland part of Biscayne National Park. It leaves from near the visitor center and crosses the water on a long bridge. It then follows a short jetty out into the water.
