So this trail requires a fee. I believe it is $2.00. However, you have to go to the Florida State Forest website to pay, and the site keeps crashing, though I get four signal bars out here. I gave up and left.

This is a great trail! We went the morning after a good rain & I loved navigating the wet trails. This trail has nice views & no sugar sand. It’s muddy right now & we loved it! For avid hikers this is a fun short trail! The dogs loved it!

This is one of my favorite trails. Lot’s of shaded! Out and back is far better now as huge sections of the loop (away from the river) are flooded. I suggest to do this trail loop during non hurricane season ( November through May) . We did several times this year and the river has swelled a lot! Watch out for gators. We have even spotted Manatees there!

We started this trail at the Barr street trailhead, did the Kolokee loop then added on a 2 mile out & back section of the Florida Trail that leads to Lockwood Blvd. Small sections of the trail had water on them but there was always a way to go around - easier for hiking boots than sneakers. Always a nice hike!

I have hiked this trail a few other times but today I actually did the loop with the white blaze trail instead of just out and back on the orange. The white loop trail was woodsy...aka lots of bugs, spiderwebs every where, a bit overgrown and muddy in spots. The woods were nice but the trail paralleling the river is a much better view.

Great trail! Pretty busy today (Sunday) for the first part of the trail. Very beautiful. If you are with your dog and your bagging their poop please take your bag with you. There were several bags left near the trailhead, which was sad to see that people just left them there.

Really enjoyable hike, most of it shaded, with pretty overlook areas of the river just off the main trail. Saw some wildlife, not as much as I would have hoped, but the hike was pleasant and fortunately not too crowded on a Wednesday morning. I imagine this would be much more crowded on the weekends due to its proximity to Oveido.

Surprised by how enjoyable this trail ended up being. Lots of shade and plenty of space to find some solitude. The hike is meandering like the river it follows. I recommend going clockwise.

Very nice trail. Nice tree coverage so this won’t kill you in the middle of the day heat. There is also a horse trail that runs parallel if you prefer the open sky. Trail is well marked with orange and grey blazes depending on the section. At the first fork in the trail, go left. I went right and had to correct. That was the only confusing spot for me.

As of today, 5/10/20, the trail is open for hiking. Primitive campsites are still closed. There are signs by the FL Forest Service that the daily use fee is currently being waived. Only about 10 cars in the parking lot and we only saw 3 other groups on the trail. Great trail. The signs and tree blazes are great. All bridges are functional. The previously "bridge out" has been replaced with a new bridge adjacent to the collapsed one. This is just a great hike. We were in dry conditions but I can see it being a little muddy in places after rain.

Trail is closed. Evidently due to the stay at home order, all such parks are closed. They have posted “no parking” signs all up and down Barr road, so it is difficult to park somewhere else and walk. Too bad because this is great exercise without getting close to anyone.

Cool little trail. Definitely go to the little trails off to the side to check out the water, that’s where you will see the wildlife. Nice walk, definitely not a hike, but mountain biking or running here would be great. Got so cool nature photos still waiting for some more wildlife. Pack the bug spray and enjoy a snack on the sandy parts or bring a fishing pole and catch a catfish.

Always a pleasant loop especially now with the expanded parking lot. Great to see more people on the trail then I ever have before with hiking being one of the few activities fitting social distancing and viral containment. Added an extra loop to stretch the distance.

I take this trail often. It’s a great trail and it’s generally pretty well groomed. However, some of the bridges are getting old and require large steps (probably difficult for small children).
