Great trail! The AllTrails map only shows the main beginning of the trail, and not the yellow, blue, and white offshoots. We took the longest (white) Trail, and it was beautiful and secluded. There are some minimally shaded areas that might get hot in the summer. A large portion is sandy, also. There’s a $2/person park fee to get into the park that leads to the trails. The waterfall is a nice touch in Fl. :)

Great hike. Some falls right through the entry.

Came on a cloudy day. Trail was well marked. Took our dog and he seemed to enjoy it. Only drawback was we had to walk through the park to get to the trails.

Not very long in distance but very tranquil setting with a few trails leading to the waters edge downstream from the headsprings. Enjoyed it very much.

waterfalls and gardens were very nice as were the azaleas. I hiked the yellow loop around an old phosphate pit. Good shade on most of the walk. Dry path a little wet on the short blue marked spur to the river.

It is pretty ... but the waterfalls are all fake and there aren’t enough trails for walking. Great for kayaking, tubing and swimming, but not for walking.
