County park - pass or $7 daily access fee required. I love this easy, well maintained trail along the edge of Lake Weir. You’re bound to see wild turkey and if during feeding hours deer too. Mostly shaded with sandy and limerick trail surfaces with a mild, easy elevation. More of a walk than a hike. Tennis shoes and comfy clothes are more appropriate for this trail than any extensive gear. Bring water. Lots of benches for resting. Restrooms, playground, day use, and beach feet away from the trailhead. Trails beyond what’s here are also available; check out the map at the trailhead for the over 7 mile route.

Fee

There is a seven dollar charge per vehicle to enter the park. If I had known that I would not of driven 20 minutes to get here. Sounds like a nice trail, I just didn’t feel like I needed to pay $7 to take a walk

Nice trail overall with lots of deer and Turkey. It has a wide sand path so you don’t get into any tight paths (even if you take the various Boy Scout paths which go a little deeper in.

I enjoyed the loop trail did it twice over three day stay. First time saw dozen turkeys and armadillo. Beautiful old trees with moss, both shade and sun. Wide trail only saw one other person both days.

Yes, $7 to enter but we’ll maintained trails. Sandy. Saw lots of turkey tracks, a deer, and a dead armadillo. Hot in the sun but at least half the Fox Trot trail was shaded. Not crowed at all on a Sunday at 10:00am in July.

Didnt get to hike this as they do not allow dogs. Paid $7 to get into the park before we realized it... it looks like a nice park though.
