Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail

3 La Croix Court
Key Largo, FL 33037

305-853-3571

Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail (FKOHT) features more than 90 linear miles of existing trail paved in segments along a planned, 106-mile corridor from Key Largo to Key West.

From a locally-inspired vision and master plan, the FKOHT is a multi-use bicycle and pedestrian facility that serves as a recreational and alternative transportation corridor for the Florida Keys. Paralleling U.S. Highway 1, which is designated as a National Scenic Highway and All-American Road, this recreational pathway incorporates 23 of the historic Flagler Railroad bridges, offering a scenic venue for hiking, running, bicycling, skating, sightseeing, fishing and paddling. Please be advised that a few fishing bridges in this area have been closed for safety purposes. They are the Ohio-Missouri, Ohio-Bahia Honda, Missouri-Little Duck, Lower Sugarloaf and Niles. These bridges are part of Henry Flagler’s Florida East Coast Railway built around the turn of the century. At older than 100 years of age, the bridges are no longer used for transportation.

The existing FKOHT is paved in segments along the corridor from Key Largo to Key West, with the longest, continuous section of paved trail currently located in the Upper Keys between MM 106 at Key Largo and through MM 72 at Islamorada, Village of Islands. The trail and its historic bridges also provide a beneficial, alternative transportation route that links the Keys' island communities.

The trail offers access to many points of interest and ecological resources throughout the Keys, including the Everglades National Park, Biscayne National Park, Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, The Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge, Key Deer National Wildlife Refuge and Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge, as well as 10 Florida state parks. There are camping opportunities available at some of the state parks and some private campsites.
