Oleta River SP

Oleta River State Park North Miami Beach, Florida

30 minutes from downtown Miami, this gorgeous park is bisected by its namesake waterway that breathes life into this spectacular natural oasis of hardwood hammocks and mangroves.

While biking the 15 miles of off-road bicycling trails or paddling along lush mangrove forests on the Oleta River, it is difficult to believe Oleta River State Park exists in the shadow of lower Miami. At just over a 1,000 acres, this natural oasis. Oleta River is a haven for mountain bikers, paddlers, anglers, swimmers and for families out to enjoy a picnic along the Biscayne Bay. Feel free to release yourself from the stress of the city at one of the picnic areas or unwind at the end of a fishing pole. There are rustic, air-conditioned cabins, too, along with a youth campground for organized groups. The park is also a welcome stop for long-distance paddlers on the 1,515-mile Florida Circumnavigate Saltwater Paddling Trail.
