Did this section and another farther south over labor day for a two day 25 mile point-to-point.

Pros: Trail was lovely and well maintained. Literally had the trail to myself on a holiday weekend because it isn't "hiking season" in FL yet. Flat and easy to put in miles.

Cons: It wasn't hiking season for a reason, temps were in the 90's both days and the ticks and chiggers were out in force. Water is pretty available but requires some nerve to wade out to depending on which pond you're at.

Very nice, full of wildlife! Bears are frequent.
