Very nice park. Bugs were not an issue which is surprising since it is so close to water. There were a few mosquitos as we crossed over the swampy area. Unfortunately, we didn't get to see any monkeys this time around. But we very much enjoyed the hike.

It was a cool hike. Seemed like a normal hike until I started seeing the swamp, that was awesome!! A bridge led me over the swamp to the Silver River. I met boaters, saw kayakers. I heard the monkeys but didnt see them. I would like to go back to see monkeys. As far as the trail it was easy, no spiders ;-) well maintained. I would like to go back and try and see the monkeys. Their there ... somewhere!

Nice shady walk. Saw families of deer. Knowing bears were nearby was adventurous but scary also

This is a great out and back trail that will bring you from the campground/museum area to the headwaters of the Silver River. Some of the trail is shaded but at least half of the trail had no tree cover so you are hiking in the full Florida sun. The trail is mostly hardpacked with some of the trail being soft sand.
