Did the whole loop, great views but not a lot of shade. Will do again!!

Overall great trail but be ready to really hike the trails are covered with extra soft beach sand and it leads to one heck of a workout. Unfortunately the trails have so many smaller trails attached it is easy to get lost. My six mile hike turned into nine. It was beautiful and not too hot for me considering its almost may. I saw Sherman Fox squirrel, white tailed deer and lots of birds. Be carefulful there is a fenced off water portion that I did see baby gators by. No sign of larger ones or the parents though.

Best trail of the 3 in Split Oak. Great little loop. Only downside is that it is so short.

Trail was good but not much to it. Mostly open. 3 trials within the park. The lake loop "blue trail" is the best part. All 3 trails are well marked. Footing if OK for running but not great.

Great for a boring stroll. Markings were not very consistent. Only reason I would return is to thank the lady that kept our 5 mike hike (which turned out 7) from turning into indefinite. No wildlife to be filound granted we started at 10. But a butterfly was our wildlife highlight

This trail is great and full of life. Perfect shade spots and scenic views.

Great hike! There is not much shaded area so bring plenty of water and sunscreen. Honestly I didn't run into any Mosquitos or horse flies. But being bug spray anyway. I completed all three trails and they are great!

Good trail, saw alot of wildlife and got in a good workout. The sandy parts of the trail can be difficult but still fun. Not always well marked but easy to figure out. I will hike this one again for sure.

Of all the Florida trails I've covered this one was close to a nightmare.
We decided to trek around the Green loop and it turned out to be a rather difficult experience. Fortunately I don't panic and have a good sense of direction. The trail was poorly marked and we got off track even when trying to effectively navigate.
There are several places where the markers are totally confusing. We came to three or four sections where the path split in different directions with no indication of which way we should go; we were constantly guessing. At the junction of the entrance to Moss Park there was no indication of which way to go and the trail branched off in four directions. We tried two of them and then back tracked to get our bearings straight. We were totally worn out and eager to get this over, so when we came upon a path (apparently trodden by motor vehicles) we decided to follow that thinking it had to lead to the road. It eventually set us back on the Green path but it was pure luck and determination.
Much of this trail is sand; deep course sand. It was tough going most of the time and took the fun right out of the adventure. We also encountered a lot of muddy and wet areas. Florida trails are not much fun in the summer heat, and this one, in off season is just too wet to consider fun.
We thought it would be a great trail for Biking and turned out we pushed them most of the way. These trails aren't even much good for hiking.
