This is a well maintained and nicely marked trail. It is mostly a sand road with very little shade. Take lots of water. I was only able to go about half way on this 4.3 mile trail before having to turn back due to a flooded trail that I could not get around. I am not fond of going through water, as that is where the water moccasins may be hanging out. This is a well travelled hike, enjoyed by bikers and horseback riders as well.

WARNING: there is no shade cover on this trail. There is also no scenery. They do controlled burns here, so there are a few trees and lots of groundcover palms. It was basically like walking along the dirt road for 4 miles. Any neighborhood will give you the same exercise with better scenery and more shade.

Absolutely no shade. All road though grassed over most of the way. Some washouts in ruts from the ranger vehicles or other vehicles have gone through. Easy to get around though. I walked this on an overcast cloudy day so it was fine. But I wouldn't walk it when the Sun was out.

Great before work stroll in Nature. I turned around at the place I did because it was flooded out. There is a place to go around but it’s muddy but if you have hiking boots its passable!

Too much water to complete, and why are they adding golf sized rocks to the trail?

Easy to follow double track. Shade is extremely sparse due to it being a pine/palmetto forest. Wear appropriate attire for conditions that day. 1-2 liter of H20 was enough for me. The white blaze took me less than 2 hours to complete.
