  • Very rooty walk when not on boardwalks. Nice adventure through Florida swap that goes down to the river. Very little wildlife. Worth a trip on day that is not too hot.  more »
  • A lot of fun for me and my friends. Please remember to bring water and use the restroom before you get there. It is 7 miles of uneven terrain that is so beautiful.  more »
  • What an incredible park. Trails are a little rough but that's part of the fun. The views of the river are spectacular. Wildlife abounds here at this park. This a long trail so if decide to try it bring water and some snacks. No restrooms so be prepared for that. I highly recommend a visit here.
  • Great hike just an hour north of Orlando. I saw tons of wildlife, more than I've seen at any trails in the surrounding areas. The trail was almost completely dry, even though it's the rainy season. Watch your step for snakes (there was a huge water moccasin on the trail) and cover yourself in bug spray
