Horse trail. Hiking and mountain biking also. Ford Loop portion is tooth from old palmetto trees. The rest of the trail is sandy at parts from horses. You will get winded if on a bike.

This is the best trail I’ve hiked in Florida so far. I’ve hiked this trail 4 different times and came across something new and exciting each time. There’s a lot to see here. Not your average boring Florida trail. There’s a lot of points of interest to discover. I came across beautiful flora, wild deer, hills, lakes, open plains, overlook of a river, jungle-like trails, bridges, bridge bells, orange trees, everglades, power poles, and great kayak spots. It’s also a very long and dynamic set of trails. You will spend hours in here. People aren’t lying when they said that this place was a giant maze. It is. You could easily get lost in here as the trail marks are confusing. To me, however, getting lost is part of the fun. Why do you hike anyway? Isn’t it for adventure? If you’re looking for that easy one-way, boring, tourist-friendly trail, you won’t find it here.

Went today. The trail system has definite possibilities. Unfortunately the trails are very badly marked. With 3 to 5 different entry points it is easy to get turned around and end up 5 miles away from where you started with no idea of how to return to the correct parking area. Maps showing where you are would be a definite improvement.

Love this loop. I race cross so I gotta a put mucho hours on the bike. Road can get lame sometimes. This place is perfect for a long easy spin through the woods. 10 mile loop so 3 laps is 3 hours of mellow single track bliss. Maybe I'm hyping it a bit, but it's still a great trail. Haha.

Some of the trails were well maintained and others, not so much. The trials are all intermingled where you'll have hiking, mountain biking and horse trails all in one. Not very well thought out trails for a all in one.

Perfect little loop with a well manicured large walking trail. Just did this one this morning. Well maintains and appears to be hardly used. Lots of Fly Orchid and area natives.

Fun trail. A bit sandy from horses. Will get winded if on a bike! Not much to look at, or maybe I wasn't paying too much attention. Overall ok.
