  • I usually go here once or twice a week. I absolutely love it. I’m not an extreme hiker so the trails here are just perfect for me. Yes it is root heavy in parts but it’s not something that is so...  more »
  • It’s Florida in July. Go early. Bring extra extra water. Hasn’t rained a ton so path isn’t wet. Don’t have to do the whole 7 miles obviously.  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
