Parked at Clearwater Friday afternoon. Hiked 3 miles in to set up camp. Hiked to Alexander Springs Saturday morning and then continued out 3 miles past Farles Prairie before turning back. Set up camp just south of 19 and returned to Clearwater Sunday. Saturday was a big day-28 miles. Great hike!
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.
