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

Nice trail to hike or bike.

Nice easy trail wich is part of a bigger trail system within Silver Springs State Park. Typical Florida ecosystems around a large sink hole which is located on the southern half of loop.

Looks like the Swamp and River Trails are combined here. They're both great.

This is a nice walk on mostly hard pack trail with some sections being loose sand. Lots of wildlife spotted and signs of wild Boar so be on the look out.

Nice hike. One of the best views is the overlook at the crystal clear Silver river. Great spot to watch for alligators, fish and birds.

Went after some rain and all the standing water made the mosquitoes nearly unbearable. It was a fun hike regardless and saw deer and plenty of other wildlife (unfortunately we missed the monkeys). There is a high risk of bear encounters this year so make sure you are prepared.

This park is absolutely beautiful. I went kayaking and loved it!!! You get to see lots of wildlife to include the famous monkeys. The river runs along the historic Fort King Village very nice site for pics. Definitely worth to visit when in Ocala area.
