Point Trail is a short 0.25 mile hike beginning from the western edge of the beach parking lot and carrying the hiker to the southwestern boundary of the park. There is no swimming off this trail but there is reportedly great fishing at the rock jetty found at the trail's terminus. Grouper, red snapper and tarpon are the usual saltwater catches. Please note that Florida does require a saltwater fishing license. This trail is also a good spot to watch the sunset. For those wanting a longer hike, take the Fort Zachary Taylor Bike Trail that intersecting from the right shortly after beginning the trail. The bike trail leads to the northern boundary of the park and provides a multi-use path directly to the fort site. The bike trail is 0.75 in length terminating at the first parking lot.
Directions: From Key West, FL, Travel U.S. Highway 1 west. Turn right (north) onto Thomas Street. Turn left (west) onto Southard Street on Truman Annexin Key West. Follow the park road to the end where you will find the beach parking lot. The trail begins from the western side of the parking lot.
