A mile and back along a well-maintained trail to a nice boardwalk and view of the Saint Johns River with plenty of old growth forest in along the way in Ocala National Forest. And easy hike, and turns into a loop about 1/4 of a mile in so you can take a different way back to the parking area. Biking and horseback prohibited.
the hiking trail is hard to find. You need to park in the overflow parking for the RV campground then the start is located behind what looks like an abandoned restroom facility. It is a nice trail with some gorgeous huge cypress trees located about halfway through the trail. You better bring some bug spray on warm days though. the yellow flies can be tough
Went on July 8-9th, got a late start so we had to battle a lot of spiders at night. We didn't get in until after midnight. But going through the prairie was beautiful, and a group of A-10 Warthogs practicing at the naval bombing range was a nice way to start the trail. I wouldn't recommend hiking in the middle of the summer, going back when the weather is more favorable!!
