Quiet hike through the Lower Wekiva Loop at the Seminole State Forest. Trail was well marked. Pockets of shade and lots of open spaces so be careful when sunny and humid. Some some stretches of sugar sand. Overall a peaceful hike. Did not encounter much wildlife.

Hiked a section of this today while completing The Lower Wekiva Loop. The part I competed was well marked, Sandy (but not too bad), and mostly out in the open in the scrub. There was a nice shelter with benches and a fire ring close to the Bear Pond Trailhead. Didn't see much wildlife, but like most of the Florida Trail.... the surrounding beauty was enough.

I'm working on the Florida State Forest Trailwalker Program. If you want to follow my progress and read descriptions of the trails I complete, visit my blog at www.floridatrailblazing.com. Stay safe and Happy Hiking!

Post Irma. Trail is wonderful. No mosquitoes either. Trail is well marked with orange paint on trees. How ever get 3 miles going north I did miss the trail. It does not go straight past the service road and Veres to the right. I tried to make it to black Creek, but came to something I call confusion corner. It was not obvious to me where the Florida Trail went. There were white markings blue markings even a red reflector on the service road. I may have been very close, but I decided to turn around. Since I was going to turn around at I creek anyway. I did startle a large turkey, saw several hawks, and a bunch of Cardinals. And 1 million butter flies

Won't hike this trail again. No shade. Lots of sugar sand. I didn't care for how this trail is marked. At one point you come to a fork with no directional sign. Marked with a combination of blazes and letters sometimes the blazed which are red are on the backside of the post. At letter J you get to hike down a very over grown path. Due to my aversion of rattlesnake venom I decided to turn back at this point.
