The Deering Estate sits atop the geological formation known as the Miami Rock Ridge, most prominent and visible in southern Miami-Dade County.
During the day, it offers eco adventures like birding and nature walks but what really is special when the sun goes down are the seasonal night hikes and campfire evenings among the tropical hardwood hammocks.
These monthly hikes give you the chance to explore the woods and its wildlife as it comes to life at night, then gather around a campfire.
Night hikes are generally held on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, October through May.
Cost: $15 per person (ages 4 and older; members and nonmembers). Spaces are limited but bugs and mosquitos are plentiful, so be prepared.
Upcoming dates for night hikes for the remainder of 2022:
Oct. 12, Nov. 9, Dec. 7
