Explore Miami’s rugged trails and mangrove-spotted coastlines of Biscayne Bay at Oleta River State Park. Florida’s largest urban park, Oleta offers adventure junkies different ways to enjoy the fresh air in the 1,000-acre park — from sea activities and animal spotting to picnics and fishing. Best known for its’ cycling trails, Oleta boasts 3 miles of paved, simple paths for novice riders and more than 10 miles of rough, off-road terrain for expert pedalers. Navigate your way through the waterways in a kayak or canoe (both available for hire, plus stand up paddleboards and mountain bikes) or spend time in the sun along the 1,200 feet of sandy beach.
Families flock to Oleta for days full of splashing, BBQ, and exploring nature trails. Cabins and campgrounds are also available.
