Description

When your pup visits Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, they aren’t just visiting a gorgeous locale. They are also visiting a state park that is loaded with history. Cape Florida received its name from Ponce de Leon when he arrived on the island in 1513 with the first Spanish Expedition. Later on, the island played a role in the Underground Railroad. That’s doggone impressive!

Located just minutes from Miami, the park serves as an ideal day trip destination. The west side of the island is home to a series of nature trails. Your doggo will love getting their exercise in such a puptastic setting. If your pup doesn’t mind walking near bikes, you can also mosey along the 1.5 mile bicycle trail. The trail is flat and it provides furrific views of the island. Keep your eyes peeled for all the migratory birds that reside in the park.

Two legged guests can canoe, kayak, or paddle board. Fishing conditions are puptacular and there is over a mile of beach access. Unfurtunately, canine guests are not allowed on the beach. So if you do want to check it out, leave your pup with another member of your pawrty. Bring a picnic and eat lunch at one of the pavilions as you look out at the Atlantic Ocean or Biscayne Bay.

There are a couple things to keep in mind when visiting this park. Dogs must be on leash at all times. They are not allowed to go in the wetlands, on the playground, or in the buildings. As you know, it can be pretty hot in these parts. Always have plenty of water on hand and make sure your pupster takes drink breaks. To keep the park smelling fresh, bring a clean up bag and always pick up after your furry BFF.

A visit to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park will make your pup one happy hound!
