Walk from SSR to OKW?

Is it possible to walk from Saratoga to Old Key West?

It is possible but it is not really safe. There is no back path to get there so you would have to walk on the main road with heavy bus traffic.

Yes, it can be done, but not at night because the path is not lit. There is a path over the Trumbo Canal that will take you from SSR to the end of the Westside of DTD and then to OKW. You end up near South Point at OKW.

You can't walk on the golf course or on the cart paths, but the walking path is open to guests to walk.

My husband and son are runners and when we stay at either SSR or OKW, they take this path to add some miles to their morning run.

I agree with the last poster. The path is not lit or very pleasant and brings you out deep in OKW. It is possible, just could be more visually appealing.
