Nice, easy hike. Several hikers, couples, families and dogs. Nice fragrance from the long leaf pines. In 20 years there will be some huge trees on this trail and the connecting Point Washington State Forest trails.

There is an issue with the recorded trailhead for this hike. When this route was originally submitted, the trailhead was located at an insipid break in the tree line off of 30A, and you had to park in the grass along the highway shoulder. As I was about to begin the hike from this location, a park ranger arrived and directed me to the new official trailhead (which has a large parking lot and an instructional kiosk). I plan to submit my recording for this new route as a trail revision to AllTrails. This hike is very similar to the Flatwoods Trail. Both trails spend most of the route along the main avenue, and both trails turnaround at a loop beside the lake. However, this route utilizes a segment that cuts through the park interior along a seldom used, slightly overgrown path. The vegetation in the park is dominated by Slash Pine, Saw Palmetto, Southern Magnolia and several species of oak. While there’s not a lot of diversity, it’s stark composition is still quite beautiful. Note: The terrain is pretty flat, so expect to encounter lots of people on bikes along the path.

Flat well marked trail with lots of informational signposts. Sandy terrain trail that is well maintained. No flooding. End view was the same lake viewed from the highway and while there were some shaded areas, much of the hike is in open areas.

Great trail. Tried to go off the marked trail a little and ran into some places of water that we had to trail blaze around

Enjoyable hike and since the trail was dry we were able to walk with Bob stroller. Good signage on trail but the directions to the trailhead took us about ¼ mile away from entrance.

Some beautiful views immersed in nature. Clear path except for occasional flooding that is difficult to pass without getting wet. I encountered several spiderwebs with large spiders across the path. Nearly walking into these guys gave me quite a shock. Descriptive signs about the local flora and fauna were a nice treat.

First to Review

Super nice trail. Very well marked. At least 1/2 is single track. We did the trail plus the lake loop depicted here and then headed east and exited on the 395. Pretty flat trails but some slight up/ down. A lot of sand! (Fat tires could be a benefit). Hint: watercolor off 395 has some nice tensed trails and bridges, with good scenery.
