The trail isn't hard, but because it's not well maintained, it's hard to follow. Don't go during the rainy season, the palms are in a swamp head and the trail runs under water for a good part.

Absolutely beautiful trail. It's been very dry lately so the trail wasn't difficult to traverse at all. Make sure you go down the blue blazed trail to the spring because that is a stunning sight to see!

Easy to follow the orange marked trees. Few roots. Some muddy spots, but mostly high and dry. Good, flat trail. Half dirt road, half in the woods.
