Enjoyed the trail and the history to the fort but I tracked it and it was only a mile not 2.4 miles. Relaxing with great views and history though!!

Love the trail! I was very scenic with lots of oaks.

Nice ride for training. Small climbs and long curves and tight turns.

I was very pleasantly surprised with the beauty of this trail. Florida trails can be so boring but this was very enjoyable.

loved it, more elevation than most hikes here.

This trail is actually .75 miles around, and is located inside the campground directly across the street from the main entrance to Little Talbot Island State Park. You'll need to punch in a code to access the campground, but we asked the ranger at the main entrance if we were allowed to go in there and he gave it to us.

Inside the campground, you can park way back by the boat slip and from there it's a quarter-mile walk to the trail head. The trail is a little overgrown in places, but markers are frequent. We also noticed some possible geocaches in the woods, so if that's your thing then definitely pay this place a visit.

Overall I really loved this short little trail. It was a great way to end the day after walking the bigger loop across the street, and all the campers we ran into were extremely friendly.

A good workout, more technical than others I have done. Good elevation changes.
