This trail was fairly easy to follow, but if you aren't used to mountain biking, it will be technical to maneuver the rocks/stumps/puddles in the path. It's not hard by any means, but it requires constantly looking down such that it's hard to enjoy the scenery. Because of this, I decided to take the horse trail back, which is very wide (used to be a service road (dirt)). If you are just hiking this trail though, it is a great trail. A bit narrow due to it being used by mountain bikes, but still enjoyable as a trail. Recommend.

This is a pleasant, easy stroll through the Florida pine forest. There are a lot of ticks if you get into the brush (or your dog does) but overall it's a shady, stroll through very flat forest. There is a bathroom and parking lot at the beginning. This is the short loop, which shares the first and last two miles with the longer 10 mile loop. There's a well marked cut to turn and make it the short loop. Overall, well marked trail, nobody else out there, and some signs of biking having occurred.
