Relatively dry right now but starting to get snakey. The Cathedral was beautiful.

Very nice and runnable trail. The trail was well mark and 6 miles is what my gps recorded. It has a few wet spots but I ran in my trail running shoes with no problems.

Breathtaking trail, be prepared for mud!

The trail isn't hard, but because it's not well maintained, it's hard to follow. Don't go during the rainy season, the palms are in a swamp head and the trail runs under water for a good part.

This was some of the best scenery I've seen from a Florida trail. Just a heads up, this trail is not in Tom brown park. It's in the St mark's area.

Five stars for the views, three stars for the bugs :/

Absolutely beautiful trail. It's been very dry lately so the trail wasn't difficult to traverse at all. Make sure you go down the blue blazed trail to the spring because that is a stunning sight to see!

Nice hike not hard. Watch for the first turn by the heliport. We missed it. added a extra mile to the hike.

Great trail! But it was a tough 6 miles!

Flat packed stone. Diked areas for waterfowl. Alligators are quite numerous near the waters edge.

Easy to follow the orange marked trees. Few roots. Some muddy spots, but mostly high and dry. Good, flat trail. Half dirt road, half in the woods.

Great birdwatching here. Usually plenty of alligators too. Historic lighthouse at the end of the road. Pretty place!
