Trail is not maintained or marked thoroughly. Really disappointed but got some good nature pics.

With the temperature at 64 degrees and a clear sunny day, Wanda and I decided to see what we could find flowering on the Muscogee Trail today. We were not disappointed as we found an early flowering Florida violet, but the biggest surprise was a patch of flowering Trout lilies (see photo). This little short trail has a surprise waiting every time I hike it. If you are in the area it is well worth the short time it takes to walk the trail.

This hike is very short so I usually combine it with the Muscogee and Fitness Trails. Every time I hike the trail system, I find a new flower in bloom. The best time to catch wildflowers is from mid February thru early summer. I find the trail very easy, but suggest hiking the trail from October up until early summer. Hiking even the short Angus Gholson Nature Trail during the heat of mid-summer can tax your body.

The trailhead of the Muscogee trail is located at River Landing Park and is one of the three trails making up the Chattahoochee Nature Trails. The trailhead is behind the Indian mound located at the edge of the Apalachicola River. The trailhead starts at a lengthy boardwalk over some now dry lowland. It is hard to believe the number and beauty of the ravines and ridges here in Florida. I stumbled up on a heard of wild hogs causing the hair on my neck to rise. We both went our own way in a hurry. This trail is in the Chattahoochee City Limits and the hogs were unexpected. A great place for a family hike.

Combing the trails of this system gave me a good two and a half mile hike. The trail is great for children due to the many different animals and flora. The ridges and ravines are not so steep that those out of shape will not enjoy the walk. There are several connecting trails cutting through the main trails so one could make the hike longer or shorter depending on preference. If you want to see the beauty of the ravines and ridges along the Apalachicola River this is the place.
