Nature Trail Walk @ Curry Hammock State ParkTuesday, June 12, 2018 - 8:00am to 12:00pm EDT

Join a Ranger for a one-hour guided walk along our moderately difficult, 1.5-mile hiking trail. Come out and enjoy a leisurely stroll through our rockland hammock and take in the flora and fauna of the Florida Keys.
