Hiked a combination of Yellow and Green trails due to Blue being temporarily closed to rid the area of Southern Pine Beetle outbreak.
Small hills and change of terrain was nice.

Good for bikes and horses. Much of the trail is sandy and passes among flat stands of pines, but botanists will appreciate the subtle changes, especially in comparison with the nearby Devil’s Millhopper scenery.

Nice trails. The trails have been cleared of any debris from the hurricane. Plenty of trails to vary your route.

Great hike, but very tore up from the hurricane. Rough hiking.

I do eight mile hikes here at least once a week and I love it. North side trails are nice and wide and the habitats change up often so it's never dull. A great place to see deer, tortoises, armadillos, a plethora of birds, insects and now even coyote.
It's dog friendly and just a great hike!

The biker riders were rude and not considerate of hikers, they felt it was their trail.

Hot. Not much to see. But, hey, it's Florida. Good luck finding a great trail anywhere in the whole state.

Check for ticks after! Very nice trail through woods. There are some moderate hills. There are a few trails in the San Felasco Park. Off of 53rd (Millhopper Road) Avenue there is a trail north and south of 53rd. There is another access for off-road biking and horseback of 441 (North). Both are excellent trails.

Only went on one trail but it was a good hike and the swampy land was beautiful. I recommend this trail.

There are over 50 miles of single track trails here at San Felasco Hammock and though they are used mainly for horseback riding & mt biking, they are great for hiking. Just yield to bikers. Weekdays are best to avoid mt bike traffic. I believe the trails here are some of the finest in the State. And if you're a mt biker, you will love this place.

I rode about 10 miles of the trails. They are excellent for cross country mountain biking with pretty good flow and not too technical.

Nice trail network! The trails are very well marked and there's always signs pointing back to the parking lot so it's pretty hard to get lost in it. There's only one trailhead that leads to everything, and the twin bridges nearing the furthest point out is a nice resting spot with picnic tables, so packing a lunch might be a good idea.
