Did this as an evening hike right when it started raining a bit. Rain kept the bugs to a minimum and the terrain was flat and easy to walk on. The trees and shrubbery were beautiful, the evening temperature was much more comfortable than middle-of-the-day sun, and the trail was well marked and easy to follow. Definitely will be taking the dogs back to hike again.

Nice hike, away from the crowds. This is a series of wide mowed trails and makes for pleasant and relaxing meandering. You can add or subtract loops to adjust the distance and duration. Unfortunately, you cannot escape traffic noise but this is still a nice trail. Would be excellent for horseback riding as well. Not too swampy, when we hiked it.

March 2019: We wanted to find a quiet, lengthy hike for exercise and to get away from the crowds. While most take the path of least resistance and follow the masses to popular trails around Paynes Prairie/Gainesville area, Longleaf Flatwoods Reserve Trail was just what the doctor ordered. While not a strenuous hike at all, it is a peaceful and serene trail through shade forest with some open sky areas. We were surrounded by many different bird sounds throughout our hike and caught glimpse of what we believe was a common gray fox. You will have some traffic noise during the hike, but a far cry from that of Interstate 75 and Highway 441 near the Paynes Prairie trails. If you seek a bit of solitude from the crowds, give this trail a try. Be aware that the overall trails on the maps at the trailhead are slightly more extensive than that highlighted in red on the AllTrails app. Happy trekking!

Definitely remote and quiet. If you just need to get away for a couple hours it’s a good place. Some variation in terrain/ fauna but no real wow moments. Worth a couple hours to check out. Glad I marked it off list but don’t know if I will be back for some time.

A nice change of pace from many other trails in the area. It is quiet, peaceful, and sparsely traveled. The network of trails are well marked and provide many opportunities to modify hiking and birdwatching. Seasonal flooding is a big issue, especially in the southern ends of the white and red trails.

Solid hike with out much foot traffic. A good place to get get lost in your head. Stopped at the lake for lunch which was well worth it. Pay attention to the blazers. There’s a lot of crossing of trails and it’s easy to miss your turn.
