Explore the Hammock loop with signs helping you to identify the trees you will see on the path or the Butterfly Meadow trail with native plants that attract zebra longwings, gulf fritillaries and swallowtails. Visit the historic Adderley House which is the oldest house in the Keys outside of Key West. See how early settlers of the Keys cooked, farmed and made their living. Learn how the area, later known as Adderley Town, attracted other Bahamians to the Keys. For a picturesque walk at Sunset, try the walk around Crane Point or the Sunset Boardwalk that follows along the shoreline.
