Trail is in excellent condition everywhere. Not overgrown at all. I didn’t actually get to see the lake that is found shortly after the initial turn to the right (you can just see a large clearing). It’s pretty darn hot, even in the morning! Bring water!!!

Really cool, well maintained trail. Lots of good hills to shake things up a bit if you’re used to flat Florida hiking

Great trail if you want a really nice relaxing walk in the woods. No frills, ponds, etc, but some wildlife sighting. Minimal traffic.

Overall good quite trail. Not much to see other than woods unless you happen to run into wildlife.

This was a nice trail. Friendly people and lots of dogs. So many trees so many different kinds. I saw three Deer, 2 pheasant, a Robin, Cardinals, an owl. A few crater looking holes that look to be sinkholes perhaps.

I like the extended route on this trail, I recommend going around counter clockwise so the harder bit is at the end!

Alltrails map is wrong. Trail does go through where it shows it ending at two points. Thankful I brought a compass and ignored this map when Marine on trail said GPS and map definitely wrong. You will hike 8 miles or get lost otherwise (I hear many stories of people getting lost for hours). Hike itself is like walking down any dirt road here. The trail is a wide road with no turns or hills. We did see a bear and 3 cute cubs on trail that growled. My friend was terrified. Know what to do with bears. Very easy hike but bring water. Note that park map at trailhead says Spring Hill- Yellow blaze is 4 mile loop and Alltrails says 6 miles. Let your GPS decide. One missed turn will make it 10 miles.

First to Review

I’d avoid section 4 as it runs against i75.
