Guided hikes at Honeymoon Island
By TIMES WIRES
Published January 7, 2007
The Florida Park Service offers ranger-guided walks of Honeymoon Island at 11 a.m. Saturdays through March.
The island is home to wildlife that includes ospreys, great horned owls and gopher tortoises. Walkers should dress for the weather and might want to bring binoculars and a field guide. Meet the ranger at the head of the nature trail.
The guided hike is free, though park visitors have to pay the regular park entrance fee of $5 per carload from two to eight people, $3 for one person in a car and $1 per person for walkers or cyclists.
If you need assistance to participate fully, call Honeymoon Island State Park at 469-5942.
The park is about 6 miles west of U.S. 19, on Curlew Road. For more information, visit www.floridastateparks.org.
