A Florida Department of Transportation restoration site on Lower Matecumbe Key that contains a Florida Keys Cactus Barren, along with a unique wetland area, coastal berm and mangrove fringe.

- Difficulty: Mostly easy – short distances at the cactus sites, terrain is not rough. Windley Key trail is approximately 1 mile.
- Bring: Water, sun protection, lunch if you’d like to picnic later
