Went with my dog to do a small hike, it was very nice with lots of vegetation. It was wet and muddy in some parts as it rained the week before. But we had lots of fun. My dog was completely muddy at the end but she was super happy. Place is kept really clean.
One of my favorite parks in all of Orlando. I bring my dog and he loves the trails especially the orange trail. It’s deep in Oviedo but still one of my absolute favorite places. Just make sure to bring some bug spray and an extra water with you!
