on Pioneer Trail

Waterfall - Where? Wildlife - sure. I did get to see an armadillo that was very much alive and had not been squashed by a car. Ups and downs give just over 400’ of gain and loss. You might one stretch where you gain about 60’. Don’t trust directions to trailhead provides by Apple Maps or Google Maps. They’ll both lead you to someone’s driveway (different driveways even). Maybe using a street address as opposed to the coordinates will yield better success.

Most of what I hiked was loose sand logging roads. That being said there’s very little shade mostly scrub oaks and palmettos. I really wanted to get down to the river but didn’t have enough time. Some of the lower areas look untouched and might offer better scenery.

OK for me taking the open trail to the little to the right would be the way to go. Go through all the cow pastures 1st period then you get the woods on the way back. It wasn't to money just not that great walking through the cow pastures.

Great trail, one section with a tiny bit of mud but it can be navigated around.

Do not try to follow the directions you get from all trails by clicking the link unless you have a very capable 4wd vehicle with very high clearance. It will try to tell you to go down FR50 which is a forestry road with very high ruts and extreme sugar sand pits. Better to find a place where Florida Trail intersects a paved road. I just hiked in via the forestry roads which I don't recommend as its like walking on the beach, very tiring. The trail itself is very beautiful and peaceful once you get away from the roads. Besides the two stranded fellows on the way out I did not see a soul out on the trail so its very lightly trafficked in January.

The trail takes you from palm forest with twisted oaks covered with air plants to open sawgrass.

Dirt road 7 miles each way, mostly smooth with some bumpy areas. Pretty, but mostly the same views. Filtered sun and full sun. Ends at a very pretty pond. We took the main park road back to Long Pine Key campground.

Having hiked a great many trails around the Jacksonville area, this is the preeminent trail for a hiker. It has it all! While linear, can be hiked in sections of your choice/length/difficulty. Great scenery, overlooks, bridge, walkways, staircase, good changes in elevation,, and along a waterway with small falls. Section 1 (Indian Ford to Knights Landing) is about 2.4 miles. Knights to Ellis is 2.5 miles, Ellis to Dunn's Farm 4-way intersection is 3.4 miles, and another .9 mi to the Dunn's trailhead parking lot. Section 1 is relatively easy, while 2 & 3 are much more challenging with plenty of ups and downs, many with steepness And this is true hiking trail, no horses, bikes or motorized vehicles; in a huge State Forest, far away from traffic and noise. But recognize this area is primitive, no facilities except at the Forrest Ranger Station (end of Dunn's) during weekday operating hours, roads well marked and packed but unpaved (except to Dunn's trailhead) , and no fountains. Great benches all along the way and campsites with tables. And did I mention a local historic cemetery.

Great trail! Lots of shade, lots of intersecting trails to explore. There were a lot of mountain bikers when we went. We didn’t see wildlife, unfortunately, but the flora and fauna are beautiful. It was an easy hike with occasional exposed roots and a few opportunities to gain elevation.

Today we walked the A Loop starting from the Holder Mine trailhead. The treadway is dry and very pleasant, free of exposed roots or other trip hazards. For a portion of the loop, the path coincides with the oranged-blazed Florida Trail. All trail junctions are well marked with signs. Trail maintenance is as good as it gets. Thanks to those responsible for taking such good care of this trail. We encountered a group of Boys Scouts on a backpacking trip. It pleases me to see fathers volunteering their time to instill an appreciation for nature and the outdoors in today's youth. Total mileage from the kiosk, and back, is 8.5 miles.

Fun but wet

Very beautiful trail. Great views of the rivers. Fairly easy. No steep climbs. Follows the Florida trail most of the way (orange blazes). When not on the Florida trail, follow the yellow blazes. Very quiet and peaceful. Only saw a couple others hiking. Highly recommend this trail.

Nice cool weather parts around Farles Prairie are a little flooded

I’ve hiked this trail multiple times but this was my first trail run on it. It was extremely wet and muddy and we spent a lot of time finding alternate routes around the trail to avoid wet feet. Once we accepted our shoes and socks were going to be soaked, we just splashed our way through! Only wildlife we saw were a couple of doves although I heard a pileated woodpecker. No hunters to be found but we wore bright clothes and hats just in case.
