  • We visited multiple hiking trails in one day; GF&A Trail and the Silver Lake Habitat Trail. Both winds through the forest. This forest is the largest one in Florida, with lots of rivers, lakes...  more »
  • Our drive through this national forest was wonderful. Such tall trees was still vibrant green in late November.  more »
  • I love it because there is some of the best fishing in the world and some of the creeks and River that anyone could ever day we do it all the time we go down and stay a week at a time or more and fish and it's not far from the beach so you can go to the beach st. George Island and it is a great place to go but I love that Apalachicola River it is one of the best places in the world and you can go to River Styx or Shepherd slow or go to Owl Creek and put in and fish I got two gardeners Landing or bloody Bluff all are great places to go fishing you will love it as much as we do I have been doing it all my life I'm originally from Apalachicola but I no longer live there but I go back as often as I can to the forest to fish and if you want to go into the national forest there is plenty of creeks and things where you can fish and catch plenty of fish out of them as my son and daughter-in-law just to have done they caught 30 and no time open what they call Tate's hell which they had a great day so I hope you all appreciate the update and that black color National Forest it is a wonderful place to come and visit and to camp or walk the trails or just fish so enjoy like we do thanks
  • This is a great force to visit and I would like to see more smaller public swimming areas and some of the small blue holes with actual trash cans available. Sometimes it's nice to go somewhere where there's less than 20 people
