This trail was absolutely amazing!

Awesome!!!

Great trail, the crossover trail is open with a slight detour and will save you tons of time.

Enjoyable trail. Very well marked and maintained. That boardwalk is still closed, but the detour is obvious.

This was my first hike ever and I enjoyed it greatly, learned that I bug spray does matter after I found about 4 ticks on myself. The whole loop took me ~3-3.5hrs, but there is the option to cut it roughly in half by taking a shortcut through the outdoor gun range. It was overcast for me, but wouldn't want to be out here on a sunny day as there was no real covering shade almost the whole way.

It was very sad to see that all wooden overlooks and the boardwalk were closed. Everything is falling apart no maintenance very sad to see this happening. I have pine forrest on my property I wanted to be close to the water in the sinkholes. Very disappointed.

I would rate this trail Easy, not Moderate. I found it pretty boring. The final boardwalk is closed due to rot, but we just walked alongside it since the swamp was completely dry.

Ticks. All of them Swarmed

One of our favorite trails! Beautiful, mature pine forest and low ground cover. Long, level runs allow you to pick up your speed and get a good workout. Few roots, good trails made of clay/sand covered with pine needles. Take a good supply of water and snacks!

Several portions of the main Sinkhole trail were closed off due to boardwalks/bridges being closed due to board rot (sub-standard repairs and wood used? It clearly wasn't outdoor grade lumber!). As a result, we had to detour at the connecting Crosswalk Trail to the Gum Swamp Trail (the dotted line trail on the map), taking a 2.6 mile hike into a 4.3 mile one, for which we were unprepared. The information was posted on a sign at the parking area, unfortunately it was hidden behind overgrown weeds, and not marked on the main trail map on the main info board. There is no indication as to when (or if?) repairs will be undertaken.

Nice and easy trail. Bridge out but, there's a well marked detour. Section of trail has lots of big spiders with webs over trail. Can duck under them w/o issue.

Campground/trail is closed. No trespassing. probably damage from hurricane Michael.

nice and quiet on a Tuesday afternoon

This is a nice trail to hike however the boardwalks to the some of the sinkholes are quite damaged now and parts of them are even closed off.

Great walking trail, lots of shade. Bring your bugspray!

We started at the Oak Park trailhead and hiked north to the FR 329 trailhead and double-backed (total 7.5 miles). We only saw two other people. It rained heavily the day before but the trail was mostly dry. Lots of ticks. There are numerous points along the trail to view the river. Beautiful hike!
