HikingGreat!

This is a nice trail. We skipped the yellow trail and did the rest (red & blue). Came out to about 3.25 miles. Nice views of the lake. No mud at all when we went. Saw a few deer along the way

WalkingBugsGreat!

Easy, well maintained trail in Geneva. This is one of my favorite trails in Orlando area simply because of how quiet it is. I have never seen more than one other car or person on this trail so you will usually have the entire thing to yourself if you want to get away. Take orange, red, and blue for more shady hikes; especially on hot summer days. Yellow is nice too but is mostly in the open. DO NOT take the open trail without sun protection and plenty of water. In the summer we were 15 minutes in, and we were struggling. The trails are marked for the most part but there are some area that look like they are part of the trail but are not. Just follow the path that looks more used in that sense.

It’s not bad out here, but it’s certainly not the greatest. It’s a simple loop with a little water. Nothing special. It’s great for evening runs though!

Very nice trails. The back part of the yellow was rutted out but still passable provided it’s dry. Very limited shade so make sure it’s a cooler day

Very nice trail. Prefer lake and shaded portion. Scrub is nice but best to do in cooler weather. Blue trail is beautiful. Sorry forgot to start recording the first part, so no full recording. We took the orange trail first to left around the lake. Then red to scrub. Stunning views.

Mostly nice n shady. Some flooded or marshy spots. Lots of poop on the trail so watch your feet. Did see a snake less than 6 inches from feet, so be careful, it was just a garden snake but there are rattlesnakes

*******On the red trail passing the yellow trail there are 3 loose dogs. One attacked our dog. ****** Avoid using this particular trail color and for safety avoid yellow path

Quiet area and extremely well marked trails. The red trail is the longest and has three off shoot trails. My dog Max and I did them all except the others all had muddy or flooded spots that had to be worked around. Probably best to visit in January to complete all trails with no obstruction.

HikingGreat!

Super well marked I did the red trail and parts of the blue trail. My pup had a great time running around. Well worth the drive if you want a nice hike. It’s very quiet and there’s a gorgeous lake. Highly recommend this one!

Well-marked, well-maintained, well worth the drive out. Muddy in places on the blue trail near the lake and junction of the red/yellow trails necessitated a workaround. Yet a solid track with wide paths, good combo of sun and shade.

HikingMuddy

I took all four of the trails (Red, Orange, Blue and Yellow) on this hike and the only reason I didn't give this 4 stars was the Yellow portion mostly follows the power lines on the eastern edge of the preserve or through low brush, is unshaded and has long sections of loose sand. Today (6/5/20) was cloudy and it was still extremely hot. That part also had a lot of water on the northern edge from heavy rain the day before, some not so bad but two spots had about 8 inches I had to slog through with no way around. The rest of the hike though was worthy of 4 stars. It runs through a pine forest with several views of the lake and benches to sit. I ran across a handful of tortoises and couple of deer. One other note: there's a spot at the very top (north) of the Red Trail that is ambiguous to say the least. The trail marker points directly into what appears to be a chopped up field of palmettos and other brush and then completely disappears. They either need to put some markers in there or re-route. I followed through AllTrails and came out ok and even saw another marker that led out of this mess, but it would be a lot easier to follow your instincts and stay on the path you're already following when you reach that point. You'll know it when you see it.

Beautiful area, especially the Orange and Blue trails which travel along the lake through shady forest and offer many stops for amazing views of the lake. There are even a few benches to sit and admire the lake views. This should be an excellent spot for bird watching during the winter season and I plan on returning then! Red and Yellow trails wander through palmetto fields with NO SHADE and is loose sand-would not recommend when it’s hot and humid as there is only one reprieve from the sun and heat at a rain shelter. All the trails are heavily used for horseback riding which made it difficult to avoid stepping in a pile of manure. We saw lots of wildflowers, birds-including Roseate Spoonbills, and gopher tortoises.

Great trail with some beautiful wetland and lake views. Trails easy to follow. Only partially shaded so beware on hot sunny days. Saw lots of birds including sand hill cranes and a few deer!

Orange and Blue loop are great and shaded. The rest is a lot less enjoyable. Overall very well marked and maintained.

We hiked 3.5 miles here and thought it was beautiful. The red loop is the main trail, which is 3.2 miles. Then there are smaller trails that branch off of it. We did the red and the orange trails. The red takes you through woods and scrub habitat The orange goes by a beautiful wetlands. The trails were well marked. Two thumbs up!

This is a beautiful trail ... but .... there are SO many different trails branching off with no trail markers ... and we got lost for 5 hours. It makes for good memories though ... but next time we probably wouldn’t get ambitious and keep taking trails that take us further away from the main area.
