Great trail in central Florida. Obviously a 5 star rating in other parts of the country are significantly better, but for Florida this very enjoyable. Its all relative. Used this to prepare for 30 miles in Linville Gorge, NC. So had 30lbs in our packs. Hot as hell with humidity we have here, so bring plenty of water. I took my last sip of my 3 L bladder as we hit the last mile. Lots of deer, and even saw a cool black fox squirrel. TONS of Banana Spiders. So keep your wits about you, or you'll get a face full of utter hell. Lol. If you hike this in the summer, start early. We started about 730am. It consistently rains almost every afternoon here in Florida, usually around 1 or 2pm. The trail becomes a little river and our last mile was very muddy. Overall, great hike. Recommend

Excellent trail. It has been a favorite for a long time. We avoided the road walk by staying on the designated C loop trail all the way back to the trailhead.

There are some hills on this trail, not always flat, easy to markings so u will not get lost. I will make this a monthly run.

First time out here. Worth the drive from Orlando. This trail is very runnable unlike a lot of trails in FL due to the fast growing conditions. Also there’s a good mix of shade and little hills. Will definitely make this a regular run. There’s also an outside shower area next to the restrooms.

Lots of spider webs and horse flies along the full trail. The spider webs didn’t pop up until after the second half of the trail, mile 8 or so. It’s a pretty sandy/pine needle kind of path. Definitely has some incline along the way, whew. Don’t let the Florida trails fool ya!!!

Awesome trail. If you’re a runner it’s a must. Walked it in 4 hours 37 minutes with a steady pace.

There are some hills. Don’t let it being in Florida assume its flat. Beautiful and lots of variety of scenery.

This was excellent. I parked near the silver lake recreation area day use lot, had some trouble finding the trail head. If you walk down to the boat ramp and look left you should see it, you have to walk under the overpass (75). We took the high water trail to B loop, and basically did the outer loop which totaled 16.89 miles. Took about 8 hours. There are a few campsites along the way you can stop at. We ate lunch at Tucker Hill campsite. The forest changes landscapes a few times which is cool. I really felt like I was in the wilderness. Didn't see a single person all day. I also only saw lizards and birds. I didn't see any sign of boar. The trail is very well marked. I'll definitely be back

First to Review

Fun race, did the 50 mile edition. My only complaint is that the start/stop area is quite far from the closest available toilet. At least put a portapotty close to the staging area.
