It was too hot for me today 93 to really enjoy the trail, I did however see a deer and my first alligator, the deer ran right towards me, than past me like I wasn't even there right on the straight hard pack road that begins the trail. The gator was in a small green swamp almost back to the y of the trail. It's quite sandy hiking the loop and not much for shade.

I've been hiking here for the last 3 years and I never get tire of it. It is so massive you could literally spend weeks exploring it. A variety of wild and plant life and space. I rarely see another person. I love it!!!

Seminole Cross Trail - Heading east on 471 its less than a mile past Colt State Park on the left. One of the best trails as far as a variety of plants and wildlife. The trail path is very clearly marked and easy to navigate through. my recent visit included a sighting of two otters, an owl, one alligator, and a chupacabra.

This is long paved trail with fairly high traffic for being so rural, since there aren't many similar ones in a large area. Nevertheless, I see wildlife very often, including groups of deer at dusk, and lots of tortoises and snakes when it's hot. The trail passes by cattle and horse fields, swamp, and some residential areas. There are stops with restrooms (locked at certain times) and catwalks at multiple places. It also crosses roadways, so watch closely for traffic.

nice trail well marked .GPS is wrong for the entrance. You need to go farther west.

This is a very well kept straight path. I ride here weekly to wind down and enjoy the scenery.

OK - so walking in Florida in early August at mid day was not the smartest thing to do; nevertheless, the four mile walk on this trail was relaxing and incredibly scenic. Excellent road condition, clean bathroom, friendly park service employees - I will be back when the weather cools down, perhaps bringing my bike to alternate activities.
