  • 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.

  • The best Florida hiking I've found in the central Florida region. Some trail, some boardwalk. Can be mucky depending on rainfall. Parallels the St. John for a good portion of the trail. We've seen gators, aquatic birds and wild pigs. A lot of shade. We love it!
  • This was my first time there. The hiking was awesome and you could get up close with nature. I really enjoyed myself. They definitely need more parking though.
