I enjoyed wandering around and saying hello to the little critters. I didn’t stick to a particular path but next time I’d like to do the full Azalea loop. Some stone steps are very steep and occasionally you are blocked by large fallen oak trees. I’d love come back when the azaleas are in bloom.

The Azalea trail isn’t well marked. Very pretty. Just easy to get lost

This park is beautiful when the azaleas are blooming, but crowded. There are several trails, so you can do more than the distance listed here. Lots of steps and 2 suspension bridges make for an interesting walk (even my 9 year old liked it). shorter than most of the hikes we do, but a beautiful park nonetheless.

This is an awesome park with some elevation change in Florida. I went on March 7th and the Azaleas were in full bloom. The app only shows the perimeter trail, but overall the spring trail, azalea trail, and trail by the water at the center of the ravine totaled to be 4.3 miles.

The azaleas were in bloom. The trail was narrow with lots of up and down terrain. $5 Park entrance fee.

HikingFeeGreat!

This was an amazing series of trails! Quite a bit of elevation change. The alltrails map is of the perimeter road around the ravine, but the actual trails are not marked. It’d be good to find a map of the trails before heading in. Really beautiful.

This was such a fun hike ! We did the Azalea trail which is 2.5 mile and a bit strenuous as there is elevation change and exposed roots etc so be careful . We were there in late January and the azaleas were beginning to bloom. We love the suspension bridges ! Overall it made for a fun afternoon . We will go back again

Wow! Felt like I was transported to North Carolina. This is Florida??? Way too short, so we went around 4 times in different directions. Not crowded at all.
