Weekday 2.5 or 6 Mile Hike in Oleta State Park
Join us for another opportunity to get some great exercise in the great outdoors here in South Florida. Oleta State Park is the largest urban park in Florida, located in North Miami Beach. The Oleta River is located on Biscayne Bay in the busy Miami metropolitan area. Although it offers a variety of recreational opportunities, the park is also known for miles of trails, which are used for walks, hiking and biking. The park has a beach for swimming and has boating facilities. Along the Oleta River, at the north end of the park is a large mangrove forest preserve where native South Florida plants and wildlife can be found. Bring a bathing suit in the event you decide to go swimming after our hike. After the initial 2 miles, those wishing to return to their cars or go swimming will have that opportunity. Those continuing will explore it's forests and trails including a specific nature trail. Our walk/hike should end about 1 pm p.m. Bring lunch or a snack and water. Also bring a friend or two if you wish. $4.00 admission fee for one car and one adult. Inclement weather cancels. If in doubt or lost call me at[masked]. Meet at 10 a.m. Hike ends around 1:00 p.m. Inclement weather postpones the hike. Directions- From either I 95 or the Turnpike, take Rt. 826 eastbound about 5 miles. Park entrance will be on the right. After paying your fee, drive straight ahead about one-half mile to the parking lot. Look for me in lot 1 on your left.

What we're about

All ages are welcome but this group's focus will be on ages 45 and up. The purpose of this group is to enjoy the great outdoors amongst our peers. Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties will be the location of many of our activities. There is no fee to join. Consider this group as a meeting of like-minded individuals who love the outdoors. Our walks will be easy, up to 4 miles. Our hikes will be more challenging moderate to advanced, between 4 and 15 miles. If you are a skilled walker, try a hike.

Transportation Note: Each participant is expected to drive to the hike location. Car pools are encouraged but my function will be arranging and leading the activity. I leave it to our members to work out any transportation issues.

This Meetup group is not affiliated with any organization. We are an independent group of friends and would-be friends who enjoy walking and hiking together.
