Trail was nice in the beginning. Not well marked and hard to follow. Actually lost the trail toward the end. Glad for GPS.

We lovingly call this one the "bikehike" because we had our hybrid bikes and it was way to much for them so we often had to get off and walk through the thick sugar sand. The north parking area is large, grass, a sheriff caretaker lives there, and has a kiosk with a trail map. Fortunately I had also downloaded a Gaia gps map and followed someone else's route - or we would have Never found the trail. Where the north trail loop splits, if you try to go right - its completely overgrown and many branches down. No worries though if you stay straight at that split that path seemed more used. Some sections of trail are shady and others are in the wide open with the sugar sand and very hot. It is pretty down by the lake. There is one road that is used for maintenance of the pavilion area by the lake and that was an easy ride. We also took the lake lizzy trial over to the Marsh loop. On the way back we just went along the powerlines - which was a much faster and easier way back.
