Osceola National Forest is a 34.5 mile point-to-point trail located near White Springs, Florida and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible from September until May.
We (my boyfriend and our pup) started out on the Trampled Track and after walking it for .1 mile we were beyond ready to explore some more. So we went around it and made our way into the beautiful Osceola Forest. We saw plenty of birds and we actually came across a skeleton of a deer, we think. We spent about an hour and a half exploring and came to a rest at ocean pond.
The Florida Trail from Deep Creek Trailhead to the Olustee Battlefield Trailhead is a lot of flat pine forest with some swampy sections thrown in. The trail is cleared and maintained by the Florida Trail Association in about October. When the rains begin in May the Trail becomes very wet. Yellow flies also show up in May through June. The section of the Florida Trail from Bell Springs Trailhead to Deep Creek Trailhead is all road walk and not worth the trouble.
