This whole park is awesome, I love anything in Florida that isn't just mostly flat trail. The Azalea Trail takes you all over the ravine, across a suspension bridge or two and up and down several sets of stone (and other) steps. There's also a scenic driving route around the outside of the ravine, which you can drive straight through or stop off at the overlooks or picnic areas to hang out.

Like the other reviewer, I was here on a weekend and yeah, no. Lightly trafficked is not how I would describe it. Apart from the sections of trail where there was all sun but zero breeze (which isn't the trail's fault, tbh) the worst part about this trail was people everywhere, all the time. Children screaming in the near distance. Music blaring from people's cars and phones. If you're looking to commune with nature, while this trail is beautiful, this is not the place for that.

Still, it would make a great family trip and overall I had a great time :)

The bridges are cool, and there is some decent terrain for Florida. I wouldn't consider it "lightly" trafficked, although we did come on Saturday.

One of the best trails I've hiked, only wish it was longer. Great terrain, wildlife and a suspension bridge!
