Well maintained trail with a diverse terrain. The entire section was just over 18 miles and we hiked a total of about 9 hours. Lots of good camping at around the halfway point around Walshingham Bridge.
Beautiful scenery and sounds. Good spots for camping.
This segment inside the Econfina-creek wma. An absolutely beautiful section. I thought that I was in North Alabama...the creeks with whitewater features, ponds, and even a respectable waterfall near the Us 231 th. We did a yo-yo from the sr20 th to the us 231 th. 37 miles in all. weather was 70s day and 40s night. Coyotes yipping at the full moon too! 11/13/16. kickatree.
This trail actually is about 19 miles from SR20 to Scotts Rd. trailhead. During the first 10 miles you explore 4 different ecosystems offering side trails to muliple pond and lakes including Rattlesnake Lake. The next 9 miles skirts along Ecofina Creek with two swinging bridge crossings and multiple swim spots in the creek. There are at least two official thru hiking campsites with multiple unofficial camping spots. Fresh water springs are available for drinking water, but recommend filtering. Most of the trail is flat with little hills to climb. The most alluring feature is the 6 ecosystems offering a wide range of views.
this 18 mile trail has a year round waterfall, 2 suspension bridges. numerous areas to stealth camp. 2 hike in only camps with fire rings. spectacular views along the Econfina Creek. Several high bluffs and 2 Steepheads. One Steephead the trail goes down into as the other follows alongside the high ridge. An open praire and the trail enters into several stages of new growth Long Leaf Pine restoration areas.
Most of the trail is easy with several miles considered moderate.
Hikers have experienced sprained ankles and 1 broke leg several miles into the trail.
Volunteers have also located lost hikers at night.
Do not let Florida's flat trails fool you.
PLEASE NOTE: this 18 mile trail is FOOTPATH only. the horse trail may interact with the hiking trail only at a few areas only.
After doing other trails in the vecinity, this offers no great views. Great for a jog.
I thought it was beautiful and very serene! About 2 miles in there is a suspension bridge called "The Two Penny Bridge" beautiful!
