This is a nice trail. Because of the summer weather, there are several places that are flooded and you have to go off trail. Even though it’s really humid, there’s enough cover to make it bearable.

Love this trail, best local one in the area. I go back often because it’s just so pretty and a good length for an easy yet decent stroll.

Nice trail, and conveniently near to many suburbs. Unfortunately, they widened the most beautiful part of it - the first half mile of winding old-growth single track is now gone. It is now 12-feet wide and straightened - not an improvement in my eyes.

I went off the path by accident, but it was easy walk. The humidity is high. It says 65% but feels higher. Ugh lol. I got here at 7am. If you want to sweat you will here. No wind really

Great for dogs. Could easily make the hike longer by taking other trails not noted on the app. Cypress in the river are beautiful!

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.
