It was not the heat during this July hike that made it less than pleasant but the spiders and mosquitoes. Had to stop frequently to move spiders and their webs from the trail. (Some very large spiders.) This made the hike take much longer than it should have. When we paused, the mosquitoes would swarm us. They were no problem as long as we were moving. An easy hike but be sure you carry sufficient water. One bridge had collapsed and made crossing difficult. The trail did not appear to be frequently hiked or maintained.

Long trail. When hiking in the summer, make sure you carry enough water (100+ oz).

An easy trail to hike. The trail was pretty clear and marked well. Not much for scenery other than Long Leaf Pines. The posted map at the starting point is backwards so be careful. Blue pond is wonderful, Crystal clear water!

I did the north loop on a nice Febuary day, so I didn't have to worry about mosquitos, gators, or snakes. The Blue Pond recreation parking lot was where I planned on parking, but they did not open until April, and the road was blocked. So I parked at the United Methodist Camp and just hiked north to find my way to the trail. From this spot the total distance was about 14-15 miles and took me right at 7 hours to complete. I did not see anybody else on the trail the entire time so it was very peaceful. The terrain was flat and the trail was well marked with white diamonds on the trees. It was very swampy at some spots and my feet got pretty good and soaked. If you are looking for a long hike with easy terrain, this is for you.
