Awesome trail for short or long hikes. I like to find a place and hang a hammock for a few hours then hike back. The river has great swimming holes and sand bars for cooling off.

Cute tiny bridges and beautiful views, adored it!

Did this "loop" today. hike was great but maps were not. kiosk does not list as a loop. I followed the single orange blaze. there is no legend and I had to just wing it. I do have a tracking app on my phone to map my hike but it only tracks where I've been. I had to stop and reference it a few times. ultimately did a loop and some out and back in linear trails for a total of 4.83 miles. would have really felt alot better if maps and trails had been marked accurately

one of my favorite places in Florida along the Florida Trail

1 month ago

One of our favorite trails! Mostly shaded, with lots of mini-trails that lead to the water and countless sandbars to rest along the river. Can be moderately crowded on a nice weekend, but never really an issue. Our dogs love this trail!

Nice stroll through the little big Econ, great wildlife, not a busy trail. Had fun

Long and lots of turns ! Watch the map!

love the river part

The bridge was out to switch trails but we went around since the water level was low. It was a beautiful hike by the river. We came across what looked like a bus stop in the middle of nowhere so stopped for our lunch there. We saw other people along the trail but it never felt crowded.

Nice trail!!!

Great for trail running! Challenging for experienced trail runners, but fun!

A beautiful day on the trail.

Great hike

As described.

When on a 10 miles hike through an area of the park. Some sections were close due to flood damaged. Bring drinking water since none is available. I went with a group of scouts from Troop 43 in Tavares who are working in their Hiking Merit Badge. Watch for bicyclists since you’re sharing the trails with them. That section of the park has three parking areas but the only on for free is the hikers one. The courtesy parking fee is $2.00 to be use in the maintenance of the trails. There is a coed bathroom in the bicycle parking area.

Great trail with lots to see! Went with my friend and encountered a few gators sunbathing, a snake under one of the small bridges, turtles and people on horseback! We were very pleased with how beautiful the scenery was. Definitely want to plan a trip back again soon! Love how the map shows you exactly where you are too. Next time we will record our route! Didn't even know that was an option

Recently completed this 4.7 mile loop trail. I'm working on my first "Trailwalker" patch through the Florida State Forest Trailwalker Program, and this trail is on the designated trail list. it's a beautiful loop, made up of 4 different trails in all. you start on the "Barr Street Trail", turn left on the Florida Trail, Left again on the "white trail", right on "Flagler Trail", Then right on the "Florida Trail" and follow it back to the "Barr Street Trail". I have a Blog documenting my progress and explaining the trails I hike at www.floridatrailblazing.com . There is a description with pictures of the Kolokee Trail under the completed trails menu. Stay safe, and happy hiking!

Not for bike.

Really nice hike. The river scenary was great. Trail was well marked and easy to complete. Will definitely revisit this trail. This is my first trail for the Florida Trailwalker Program.

Great trail for all level of riders, with some great scenery and wildlife. For a 360 video of a portion of the trail, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDoUv27_BVg&feature=share

Didn't make it all the way to the landing strip as much of the trail adjacent to the river was flooded from Hurricane Irma, but definitely going back when the water level recedes a bit. Very easy to navigate, and saw some deer at night while heading back.

Great for a relaxing hike with your family. plus lots of wildlife to see.

A beautiful trail to Hike. Parts of the trail were flooded after Hurricane Irma, but was still passable. We went during the middle of the day so we did not get to see much wildlife, but we were lucky enough to see a Red Tail Hawk, a 5' Alligator and a Pigmy Rattlesnake on the trail. Although there is limited parking at the Trail Head, the Trail seemed to be heavily traveled by other hikers. This trail is relatively close to my house so I will be going back to hike it again.

The trails were fairly well marked, and the route featured a lot of shade and beautiful oak trees. My only suggestion is not to hike this trail during rainy season, as we were not able to complete the loop due to the river covering the trail. We had to turn around and go back the way we had come.

Always a pleasure to hike my home trail

Nice shaded trail. Did some fly fishing along the way

Love this trail. Lots of great scenery and it changes frequently. I wouldn't recommend it for kids because of some erosion of the trail near the river. it's quite a long drop. Gators, snakes and a paw paw tree spotted on our hike.
