The well-maintained Robins Birding Trail is an excellent 3.5 mile out and back trail. It starts at the south end of the key just northwest of the Cape Florida Lighthouse, and as the name implies, offers excellent birding opportunities. It also features a lookout point at the No Name Harbor, and views of the Stiltsville in Biscayne National Park.
