Great trail! It is marked hard, probably due to the amount of water you might end up hiking through, if it's the summer. In parts of the trail, water will easily reach close to your knees. Very beautiful trail.

Nice secluded flat trail that offers a variety of Florida style views. Palmetto groves, cypress domes, tall grass prairie land and a beautiful creek spot. Would definitely recommend for hiking, walking and trail running.

Walked this trail for the first time August 12. It had been raining most everyday so the trail has fairly tall grass the entire length of the trail since its been impossible to mow. As a result you must wade in a couple places on the trail. It's a nice trail and fairly well marked. Recommend long pants even in summer with the tall grass as ticks were a fairly big problem. Had to stop two times in the 4 mile trek to pick them off. But it is a nice trail and I will definitely hike it again

Not sure why it's rated hard. Flat, wide trail. It was cool and pleasant. It is probably incredibly hot during summer as the entire hike is unshaded. Very peaceful.

Good walk on what are essentially fire roads. The river spot is a hidden gem. Worked out to be 4.7 miles when you include the side path to the river.
