About
The bridge re-opened after restoration on 1-12-2022. You can walk, bike or rollerblade the approximately 2.2 miles to Pigeon Key on the bridge and enjoy the amazing views. In the Florida Keys, there is no name better known than Henry Flagler who built the world-famous Oversea Railway in the early 1900's. Called the "8th Wonder of the World", this amazing ribbon of steel and concrete forever changed the history of the Florida Keys.

    Multi use path in great shape. Well signed. Great views.
    We headed to this bridge to catch the morning sunrise. Ample parking when we arrived and it was still dark. Great views from on the bridge as you walk the 2 miles to Pigeon Cay. Note that Pigeon Cay is only open at certain hours and certainly not at sunrise - therefore no bathrooms. There are lots of other walkers, bikers, and joggers so you feel safe, even in the dark before the sun rises.

    Great walk over to Pigeon Key
    Total mileage is just over 4 miles. We stopped on our way down to Key West to take a driving break. Make sure you stop and look for marine life as you go. We saw plenty of Tarpon, stingrays and a few sharks. Lots of pelicans flying overhead. Great walk in the middle of a long drive.

    NICE OLDER RELIC
    This was the original bridge that first had trains on it, then cars that was closed in 80s when the new bridge opened. The first 2 miles to the north have been restored for pedestrians and bicycles to enjoy leading up to Pigeon Key. Then there is a gap and it is fenced off the remainder of the way as it sits alongside the newer bridge down to the next key.

    Great bike ride
    Rented a bike from Captain Pips where we stayed and rodé over the old 7 a few mornings while we were there. It is a beautiful ride. A fun fact. Behind the new silver guard raíls are the original train track from the Flagler railroad. When the took up the track to make the original guard rails

    A Must
    My husband and I brought our bikes with us for this experience.. We got up early one morning and was out there by 7:30am to avoid the heat as much as possible. It was the perfect morning, showers in the distance that helped cool the ocean breeze and the cloud coverage was perfect to add to this enjoyable experience. We didn’t do Pigeon Key cause it wasn’t open yet but had a great time and would recommend to others :)

    Great place for a bike ride or walk
    Beautiful drive across 7 mile bridge, but especially like biking across the OLD 7 mile pedestrian-bike bridge. It is 2.5 miles each way/ 5 miles total so we ride it twice. No where more beautiful for a bike ride. If lucky you might see sea turtle or sting rays on clear days.

We purposely picked a cool day in the 60's to visit. No parking was available in the lot, so we had to park .75 miles away. It was also windy, so the water was churned up, and we didn't see any fish or manatee. We walked only to the 1 mile mark since we didn't intend to pay the $25pp to enter Pigeon Key (no facilities there either!).
Zero shade or seating available, so don't go when it's hot.

We failed to make it to the bridge for sunset - instead we walked the bridge during the full moon. Beautiful and peaceful walk.

It is definitely worth driving over just to visually capture the beauty of the ocean. Some of the Keys house some pretty impressive homes and buildings. A really nice experience to have while traveling in the Keys.

The bridge is a great place for walking/biking with beautiful views of the water. If lucky, you may see sharks, ray's , turtles or other sealife. There is very limited parking on the bridge.

Loved the 2 miles out to pigeon key. It was absolutely beautiful and a great ocean breeze. 4 miles total and it is smooth and easy to walk on!
