Like the last guy said, beware of spider webs running across the trail. I inadvertently trampled through most of them, but I’m sure they’ll be back. Fortunately nobody was around to see me flailing my arms around in a mild state of panic after unexpectedly walking into one. Mosquitos were not too bad this time of year, with a decent breeze in most places. Just don’t hang out too long in the wetter portions of the trail. I only went 2.5mi in from the west trailhead before turning back, but that portion wasn’t particularly scenic. Just typical Florida scrub. Quiet, though. A tree was down across the trail about a quarter mile in, but you can easily walk around it or squeeze under it.

Great coastal scrub landscape and views. Watch for large spiders making large webs across the entire trail. I saw a large whitetail deer run across the trail on the side farthest from road. There are good paper trail maps at the trailhead(s). I didn’t connect the East loop because it was massively overgrown with tall thick grass. I tracked some other animal prints in the sand.

Nice easy stroll through A variety of pine forest types. Note this map does not correspond with the printed maps at the trailhead.

not worth it, the woods have been cleared and there's nothing to see but sand and wood chips

Tate's Hell is aptly named. Hot, sandy, buggy. part of trail appears to be closed for endangered species. too bad no notice at trailhead. This trail is probably much better during fall and spring. I would not recommend for summer!

A nice walk in the woods in January. That's it, this is an uninteresting trail. But for getting out and some fresh air, this is as good one. We could only go a little over a mile on the Blue trail due to water. It had rained the night before and hadn't dried out yet. looked like people use this trail on bikes too.

Doesn't compare to the Blue Ridge Mountains, but a decent hike overall. Saw a snake and some eagles. The walk along the road was a little hairy at times.

First to Review

The trail is located in Tate's Hell State Forest in Carrabelle, Florida. Both the eastern and western trailhead parking areas are accessible from US 319 just outside the town. The trail is mostly sand and the elevation change is pretty gradual so it isn't much of a challenge. There isn't much to see that you can't see from any other trail in Florida. During my visit, the northern side of the western loop was closed and we got caught by the rain so we took the road back to cut some time off. The trail map says it is the first trail in the forest so I am guessing it is relatively new. Not the greatest trail in the area but there are worse ways to spend a few hours.
