Hiking Nature Trail
A 0.75 mile linear hiking trail traverses the island's tropical vegetation. The trail takes you over steep shell mounds created by the Calusa Indians, the tallest being 33 feet making for some of the most extreme terrain in the area.
- Guided paddling tours of Mound Key are offered by the College of Life Foundation.
- For a group a ranger guided tour can be arranged by contacting Koreshan State Park at (239) 992-0311. Guests must provide their own transportation to the site.
The entire island of Mound Key is one large historic site. From the Calusa Indians who built the site, to Spanish Explorers who discovered and colonized Florida, up to turn of the century frontier settlers this site is rich in Florida history. Interpretation of the site is limited at this time, but much information can be found on this website and brochures are available at Koreshan State Historic Site.
