It was a nice walk. Took young kids and they did fine. There were no bugs so that was nice. The kids had a great time climbing the root covered hills.

Perfect nature walk to do with kids and dog on leash! Cleared pathways and lots of cool spots to take pictures. And some fun trees to climb throughout the trail to keep it exciting for the kiddos- Loved it! Make sure to apply bug spray before you go!

Fun hike but BUGGY after the fork. Not very muddy, besides a few spots at the beginning. Even in November, should have gotten out earlier. Heard some large group of dog-like animals howling at the airplanes flying low. Neat experience. I will definitely try again soon - with *real* bug spray.

My favorite local trail for scenic variety, a decent length loop with a few options, a few steep hills and roots to keep it interesting and a little bit of challenge (for Florida)
