Nice trails

Not very long but its a lovely piece of "wilderness" to find and enjoy if you want to get away from it all.

If you have time to take a short hike I recommend experiencing this area. You can access it directly across from Crandon Park Marina and Divers Paradise by crossing the road or going under the bridge. There are trails which you can hike and ride all the way to the end of the Key Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park.

I have been visiting Bear Cut for years. And I have seen bears. As in manly men. Sure the muscle boys and twinks are there too. This beach on the North end of Key Biscayne is sometimes cruisy; sometimes not a soul in site. Can't really say one day is better than another but after 5pm appears to be happy... More

The first thing I would do in preparation for a walk/ride to view the Fossil Reef and Biscayne Bay is to make a stop at the Nature Center. Pick up a copy of the general brochure, "Welcome to Crandon Park's Bear Cut Preserve." This will provide an overview of information about the area and has a map of the four... More

Not much to this 2.3 mile hike, the trIl does open up to very nice views of the beach and ocean. Not much in way of wildlife.

This place has wonderful views of the bay. Although some of it is quite litered it is a beautiful are full of trees, shade and natural habitat. We go there to be in touch with beauty, nature and see some fishing. It is a great place to explore and enjoy.

You should bike from Crandon Beach (or Key Biscayne), to the Bear Cut Bridge (now under repair). There is a pretty nice bike path from the Key Biscayne village entrance, so you can safely ride and enjoy the scenery.
