Have been here a couple times. This last time I made it to the end and it clocked in from the front sign to the end sign 4.9 miles but if you walk around the sign it goes to 5.0. It is extremely well maintained. With several benches to rest or take photos and bridges to cross the water areas of the swamp. So many picture moments as it was lush and green. No ticks but saw a large spider off to the side not bothering anyone. Picnic table at the end was a bonus to take a rest and have some water and a snack before heading back. There were no pamphlets again but I will call in and have someone drop some off. Well marked trail.

My girls and I have hiked Marshall Swamp multiple times. The first hike landed me a tick, the second and subsequent hikes were good except the swamp was getting really dry. I'm sure that's not the problem with all the rain lately. Bring bug spray. Mostly under trees and around swamp. Mosquitoes playground.

Very nice trail for hiking. It's about 6.24 RT miles from 64 Ave in SS to 314 in the Ocala Forest. Nicely shaded and beautiful bridges along the way. Not very well marked, also it's not a loop you need to turn back of have a car a each end.

My wife & I hiked Marshall Swamp trail Fri Nov 8, 2013. Complaints: There is no trail map posted at the trailhead. There is no indication as to the trail's length. There is nothing to tell a person that the trail is out to a dead end. There is no description of a destination, or whether the trail is a loop, or a dead end trail. A large bulletin board at trailhead could provide a lot of this information which would help greatly. We hiked for over an hour & turned around because we didn't know how much farther the trail went. Very frustrating.
