10 Trails, Bikes And Beaches Off Miami's Party Circuit
By Andrew Belonsky
Neighboring Ft. Lauderdale is replete with out-of-doors, in-town excursions, including Hugh Taylor Birch State Park, a private estate-turned-public park along the Atlantic. Strain free, the park's kayaking, hiking and fishing are a perfect way to get some fresh air without working up too much of a sweat.
Nearby Tree Tops Park also has trails, both for hiking and horseback riding under the canopy, and about 40 minutes north of Ft. Lauderdale, check out the canoe trails at Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge.
