Hiked the 6.2 mile loop. Nice little hike. Stopped to check out the only primitive camp site available. It's a nice open space with picnic table, fire ring, and benches. Plenty of area to explore around site gives you that secluded feeling. Only ding is no water available.
Part of trail hugs the river where many people were conoeing/kayaking and you could actually walk down to water from trail.
Hike is not difficult by any means and provides a cross trail if you don't want to do the whole loop. Noticed small signs of pigs rooting around and came across deer on trails. Also saw gators in river as I passed by.
Such a pretty trail, except for someone's nasty baby diaper, which I did bring out. Shame on those that go out enjoy a trail such as this and leave trash for the rest of us to enjoy. Other than this trail is gorgeous.
Great wilderness trail providing awesome shade throughout your hike. Trail was very well maintained and preserved which allowed for easy seeing of hawks and ospreys. Great trail for any first time hikers who have an itch for adventure!
Easy and beautiful. Access to nice primitively sites
