Nice place

Fabulous! A trip through different ecosystems- each one a true treasure. And if you don’t want to cross Morris Bridge Road, I suggest you sign up with AllTrails so you can get detailed maps and info on the numerous small trails accessible off of the Main Trail loop.

Geneva Wilderness Area is a very pretty area that is well-maintained with a variety of trails and habitats. Most of the trails take you through pine flatwoods, but you can also walk through bay swamp habitats. There are three ponds on the property, two of which can become completely dry during certain times of the year, and at other times they may flood some of the trails. When the trails are clear, you can walk to the Florida Trail and connect to all the destinations of the Little Big Econ SF. Since parking is free here, this is one of my favorite locations to walk the entire area.

Starting at the Jones trailhead allows a similar double loop with a touch more river and way less time on the rails to trails Flagler. It is entirely bicycle friendly which takes a bit of hiker solace out and adds in a big dose of twisty-turny especially on two bridges. The ditch is a must see and do especially for bikers but I find the river panoramas a more interesting hike.

Bring bug repellent! If you go early or late to avoid the heat, the bugs are vicious. Biting flies and mosquitoes. Aside from that, it's a beautiful hike. One of the, real Florida, type of nature trails. Mostly shaded. We didn't have time to do the whole loop, but we'll be going back for sure.

I would go back. Make sure to take someone with you if your walking. (To remote).

Great long runs. Mostly flat singletrack trails. Excellent way to get into mountain biking for all skill levels. Excellent way to build up your biking health and shape.

Had a nice time! Saw a skink on the white trail, and several birds I’m sure enthusiasts would enjoy as well.

Tons of geocaches!!!!

BSA Troop 43 from Tavares completed a 15 miles hike today. We took the main trail starting with waypoint 1 at Wekiwa Spring. We follow the trail until reaching Waypoint 19. There was lot of muddy spots along the river and beyond. We crossed into the main/bicycle trail and followed it to waypoint 10 where we crossed into Volksmarch trail. There are several small sinkholes in the area with a huge one that was pretty deep. We continue our hike all the way to the starting point. Through our hike we saw few wild turkeys and some tortoises but, for the most part wildlife was absent through most of the trails. Waypoint 1 was a little tricky to find since there was not much signs in the parking area indicating how to get to it. In general, it was a good hike but, you need to be prepared for it with plenty of water and snacks for energy.

Awesome trails for walking or biking.

Fun hike! I actually would say it is easy/moderate due to soft sand, tree roots, and sloping path. Beautiful Florida landscapes and most of the trail all you hear is nature, very peaceful.

Perfect flat biking trail and shaded out of the direct sun! Very long so can go either way for a good while!

Very kid friendly! There’s a small foot path off of the trail at the end of the river trial that we took and I fell into the river! Ha ha ha! So take precaution and look where you step. Very easy trail.

Easy trail. Park is still cleaning debris from storms but trails are clear and well marked.

When on a 10 miles hike through an area of the park. Some sections were close due to flood damaged. Bring drinking water since none is available. I went with a group of scouts from Troop 43 in Tavares who are working in their Hiking Merit Badge. Watch for bicyclists since you’re sharing the trails with them. That section of the park has three parking areas but the only on for free is the hikers one. The courtesy parking fee is $2.00 to be use in the maintenance of the trails. There is a coed bathroom in the bicycle parking area.

It was very nice. We came out to camp cozy and loved where it was at. No one bothered us. For Florida camping it was pretty primitive. They have a bear box and a non-potable water facet. The bear box was my favorit! After the hike in water and snacks awaited us with an awesome note etc! It was so cool so we decided to keep it going

Not for bike.

All you can expect and more. Simply beautiful! Great hike!

Great for a relaxing hike with your family. plus lots of wildlife to see.

A very nice leisurely stroll. Would recommend if you're visiting the area and want to experience some of the nature.

Watch your step and keep an eye out for lizards!

The 5 mile orange blaze trail was awesome. Really wanted to do the 13 mile white but it wasn't as clearly marked/overgrown
