    Jacob Zehnder reviewed Enchanted Forest Sanctuary

    5 months ago

    What a lovely little park. A nice selection of different length trails that take you through a variety of plant communities. They intersect often enough that you can piece together a decent length hike (like 5k) if desired.

    About as good as it gets in FL for a park this size.

    Well maintained. Well marked. Has a nice visitor center with restrooms and water fountains. No dogs.

    Jacob Zehnder reviewed Ocala National Recreation Area Trails

    9 months ago

    Did this section and another farther south over labor day for a two day 25 mile point-to-point.

    Pros: Trail was lovely and well maintained. Literally had the trail to myself on a holiday weekend because it isn't "hiking season" in FL yet. Flat and easy to put in miles.

    Cons: It wasn't hiking season for a reason, temps were in the 90's both days and the ticks and chiggers were out in force. Water is pretty available but requires some nerve to wade out to depending on which pond you're at.

    Nice short trail. As the name implies it goes thru some scrub habitat. Also loops more closely to Mosquito Lagoon than the map shows.

    Nice trail. Longer than a lot that you find in FL although it is an out-and-back which no one loves. Trail is mostly loose sand or leaf covered sand but its very wide so no fear of anything in the bushes surprising your ankles. My wife and I saw a number of armadillos and a whole family of Florida Scrub Jay (which is a highly endangered bird found on in FL). Nicely changes ecosystems throughout the hike but I would NOT do this in summer as other reviewers have pointed out.

    Some of the best views in the area and more accessible than Pyramid. Great views of Dutch, Bunker Hill and Pyramid Peak. Permits can be purchased from the Ounalashka Corp. on their website. https://www.ounalashka.com/land-use/land-use-permit/

    over 1 year ago

    Nice little hike with awesome 360 views of the three main bays in the area. Very little traffic so you will usually have the bunker to yourself.
