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.
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 Park.
