Home of one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world, this park plays host to an abundance of wildlife, including alligators, turtles, deer, and birds. Daily guided riverboat tours provide a closer view of wildlife, and glass bottom boat tours are offered when the water is clear. Swimming is a popular activity during the hot summer months. A nature trail offers a leisurely walk along the upland wooded areas of the park. The Wakulla Springs Lodge was built in 1937 by financier Edward Ball and is open year-round. A full-service dining room overlooks the spring; lodge meeting facilities offer an excellent place for retreats. Wakulla Springs State Park and Lodge is listed on the Natural Register of Historic Places and is designated as a National Natural Landmark.

Very nice 6 mike walk/hike.

Very easy hike for all levels. Only thing is the map at the beginning of the trail did not notify us there would be other trails. We accidentally went on another trail called Hammock Spur that did eventually loop back to the main trail. If you just want to stick with this trail, you will need to follow the signs that say Sally Ward.

Ran the old logging roads around the park. Great sand base. Wide enough to avoid brush (and ticks). Beautiful wooded areas. I put in 5 miles, and left more for another day.
