My wife and I had an awesome hike on the Serenova Tract this week. We began by making our way to the fishing lake noted on the map, and continued south to some lovely river crossings in beautiful woods. It was a fabulous place to stop and eat some snacks away from the heat. Really my favorite part of the trip. From there, progressed west on some water logged but exposed trails. Then headed north then east along a route by the power lines then back to the lake. The trip was enjoyable and about 10 miles. That was slightly longer than anticipated, but all around a nice journey.

Items to note: Definitely a fair amount of exposure on a number of the trails, route can be sandy or rocky at times, river crossings exist but are a blast to cool off some and filter some water, and my main complaint is the lack of signage and overgrown trails on the far west side near the power line route that heads north-south. Otherwise, well marked per the map at the entrance. Also, really nice camping spots near the entrance!

as another rider stated the rocks can be a issue for horses with tender feet but if you stay on the very edge of the trail you can avoid most of the rocks but once you get past them its a great ride you can walk or run like the wind one day my friend and I rode for over 8 hours we made it all the way to S.R. 54 and back

My first hike in Florida, nice easy trail, well we call them dual tracks or roads in Colorado. It's well marked and the app worked great when I took a wrong turn. A little burn at the beginning but quickly got out of that. Avoid hiking the power line road it's just boring and hot. Thanks

Always enjoy the trail. Plenty to see and very isolated. The lakes are perfect for fishing and the campgrounds have fire rings and a bathroom!

Very nice ride on the horses. The park is well maintained but they have added a lot of compacted rock to the main trails. Can be an issue for horses with sensitive feet.
