Shaded hike to Lake Jesup. Park at the trailhead and hike down the main road (cypress trail). There are information signs along the way although there are indications of disrepair after the 2004 hurricanes. There is a spring located along west side of the trail about a mile from the trailhead. The boardwalk at the end of the hike is closed right now even though it would be fairly easy to get it back up to standards. This boardwalk is needed to get out to Lake Jessup.

About a mile or so down the main trail, you can’t go any further because of water. You can’t even get near the boardwalk to Lk Jesup. The trail is pretty though. There’s a side trail to the left as you’re returning, that goes along another creek-very pretty. Will give you another mile or so. It comes out at the education center. Warning: the trails are very poorly marked. This isn’t up to Seminole County’s usual trail standards. Nice two hour walk though.

I love walking this little trail. Unfortunately a few of the boardwalks are closed right now due to storms but it is in the works of them being redone. By next year, hopefully this will be back to an amazing trail and boardwalk. Not bad for riding a bike too.

I took my dog hiking here today. Nice loop trail following a creek for half of it. Some boardwalks were closed. Nice afternoon hike.

I went here because Soldier Creek across the street was inaccessible due to construction. This trail is ok for people riding on a mountain bike for the first few times. Other than that, it's not challenging at all and it doesn't provide any obstacles. This is more of a hiking trail. It is very relaxing though.

Be prepared to get wet. The boardwalks are still closed. Lots of signs are missing.

Good shaded hike! A lot of the boardwalks are closed and we weren't able to get out to Lake Jesup and other areas.

I do love this trail. It is shady and the vegetation is lush. It is a shame that some of the bridges and boardwalks have not been repaired.
I have seen butterflies,large owls and alligators. Parts of the trail do flood.

Fun! The trail was blocked by water about 20 minutes in but it was a good little hike.

Nice trail. Can be rather busy during weekends. 1.25 miles from the start until you reach the lake.
