Great Trail, but the only thing the trail needs upkeep and markers. lots of down trees. The sinkhole board walk is in dire need of repair, pretty much lots of rotted boards. The entrance road is a dirt road, so not good on rainy days unless you have a truck.

Very nice trail. Flat, well paved. Good bathroom facilities nearby. If you just want a walk through nature, this is it!

Very nice trail. It was well marked and wide. We hiked it after a rain event. We found it to be well drained. It was January and a perfect day for a hike.

The extension is worth the time. Close to the road and campground at times, but shady and some beautiful live oaks. noon

Nice trail pretty flat and level sinkhole was in Normas more of a depression than a sinkhole. A lot of deer tracks but didn’t see much wildlife.

Nice trail through the Florida woods. Easy to follow and quiet -- didn't see anyone else on the trail on a Saturday morning.

Well marked and clear trails with nice picnic areas. Not that interesting of a hike though. Lots of sign of wild boar, but the sinkhole is overgrown and not much to look at. Also the mosquitoes were moderately annoying.

Nice easy trail wich is part of a bigger trail system within Silver Springs State Park. Typical Florida ecosystems around a large sink hole which is located on the southern half of loop.

This is a nice walk on mostly hard pack trail with some sections being loose sand. Lots of wildlife spotted and signs of wild Boar so be on the look out.
