Nice trail, though not much different from the Young Hammock Trail.

Very short but absolutely beautiful trail! Well worth the visit to the park.

Very short trail (.5 mile) but scenic beauty along the way.

Nice trail. No wildlife due to noisy weekend hikers. Will try this one again in the middle of the week.

so much fun

We had so much fun going through the various trails there. There was soooo much more to do but we didn’t have time. Will go back!

Great trail will definitely return for this hike again. We saw some wildlife.

Very nice trail through some very mature hardwood forest. Ran into a few mosquitoes even in late November. Bug spray advised. Worthwhile hike though!

A beautiful trail with lots of birds and other wildlife sightings. Views include ancient cypress and towering old citrus trees. Just one of several incredible trails within the Highlands Hammock State Park.

I always see the most wildlife on this trail.

Great easy walk, great vegetation-including palms, pines, orange trees (with oranges), no Alligator(s)-did spot an Armadillo burrowing in the soft soil near the roadway entrance!

Peaceful ride, lots of cool wildlife to see. They have bike rentals there at a very reasonable price if you want to ride. Very nice staff

Decent trails. Trail "lengths" in minutes is a bit overrated.. Was done with most in just slightly over half the time it allotted per trail. Bugs were terrible.

Great trails for hiking and great primitive camping!

Great trails, all well maintained. Did all of the loop trails with ease. Camped in the primitive camping area and hiked starting from our site out to the bike path and made a full loop back to the camp site.

Highlands Hammock has lots of very flat, easy trails. Some are long and some are shirt. It's a great place to hike!

Did all 5 short loop trails. All were well-kept and we saw otter, alligators and woodpeckers.

Very nice for a Florida trail. Fun walk ways and plenty of alligator sightings! We saw a mama sunbathing with three or four babies on her.
