Thick woods, lotsa palmettos, and a Florida waterfall! Cross over the river using the tree bridge. Go along the river until you see the cypress tree next to a little waterfall.

i am very surprised this was labeled as easy. It is deceptively this way because there is a nice wide trail at first but the second you go off the maintenance road it becomes small, curvy, not marked. The red at the south is labeled as Twin Rivers and not to trespass so I would have backed it up a bit before you turn around and not follow the red all the way. Also the red line crosses the river you don't actually cross it you just walk along the bank a few times. Of the trails I have walked this was the best at seeing nature with me seeing turtles, birds, lizards, squirrels, alligators, waterbugs, fish. It is also the first trail walk I have not seen another person at all. Conflicted on how to rate this because the trail is not well marked but the nature part is great so I split the difference.

This is a short trail which follows the Little Econ River. It doesn't appear to be a formal trail, but likely made by fishermen. There are trees with duct tape on them that appear to be there to mark the way to the "waterfall," a small cascade made by Cypress roots. It was an enjoyable walk.

The waterfall is small, maybe 5ft? Most people are expecting something huge, but it's really not.

This was not worth the drive to get there, once there you practically needed a machete to find a path...an employee at Riverside Park didn't even know there was a hiking trail there. I was very disappointed. :-(

This is a good little trail that is dog friendly. I used to live in a neighborhood near-by. It begins in a park where there are tables under pavilions for picnics.
