Nice little trail right next to UCF. Dog had a blast. Trail is well maintained and there are some great water views at the turnaround point. Easy to stretch this into 3 miles if you follow the river before making the loop back to the starting point.

Mostly sunny trail, pretty delightful in the morning! Definitely bring lots of water, sunscreen and a hat.

It’s a decent trail but not a lot of views. The trail leading to a water view is quite narrow and overgrown, if I hadn’t had the trail map from the app I wouldn’t have trusted the pathway.

This is an easy, but pretty, trail that briefly meets with the river. It does have a little “beach” area that is good for meditation.

Fun trail. Some good opportunities to go off trail and picnic on a private patch of riverbeach at the Econ River.

Wide open trails. Go off trail to see the river.

It was a nice easy peaceful walk

The connector between two trails is very difficult to find.

Nice flat out and back

This was my first hike in the central Florida area. Like other reviews, I agree, was a little boring until you got to the river and then you quickly start circling back. I took my girlfriend and dog, and overall it took us an hour.

Second time on this and enjoyed it again. The trail is rather mundane. The fun starts when you get to the river and go off piste following it upstream.

Trail was nice, not much to look at until you get further in near the river. Main trail is easy.

The marked trail is about two star worthy. If you want to walk a prepped trail with the fam You are wAy better off taking one of the Barr street trails. But if you have an adventurous spirit and choose to go off piste by taking a right when you hit the river you will find one of the prettiest river hammocks Seminole County has to offer It is the kind of wilderness that will touch your spirit of nature and make you oppose any development that would dare touch this natural beauty.

Nice trail for mountain bike. I took my hybrid out and immediately regretted it. Large rocks and roots everywhere. I couldn’t enjoy it as much cause I had to keep a constant look out. But very pretty if you want to walk in!
