Part of the Florida Trail system. I just did this small segment as an out and back. If you are looking for a scenic trail, go south on the Jupiter Creek trail. If you just want to explore a different trail and like trail running, I'd recommend this one. There is absolutely no water on the portion I completed. The southern trail follows the creek, and you would think this one would too, but it veers off to the east instead.

Even though I went on a relatively overcast day, I was still pretty hot. There isn't much tree cover, just sparse pine trees. My poor doggo was dying from the heat, so plenty of water for your four legged friends is a must, especially dousing them when they get too hot.

If you are looking for a trail of endless pine trees, you have found it! I recommend this for an avid hiker looking to put some miles in, or better yet a trail runner that will run through this fairly boring stretch quickly. The ground is relatively flat and well marked, with minimal roots popping out. There was one tree canopy that had fallen over the trail about 0.5 miles out that you have to walk through the vines next to the trail, but besides that it was well kept. Could be a nice trail to park two vehicles and through hike it to Bear Lake.
