The outbound on the FT is pleasant enough. The return is more slough through cattle pasture than trail hike.
Doing it in July (rainy season) provided additional adventure as in over the ankle water in sections of the FT and most of the pastureland. But then this is a wetlands section. Barb wire pasture boundaries, wild turkeys and cowpies a plenty add to the adventure and earn the moderate ranking. Worth doing? Yes. But not as pleasant as the nearby FT sections available from the Barr St trailhead.

I hiked from the St Nicholas Ave trail head of E Colonial (50) North to the Seminole Ranch Check station and back. Lots of Banana Spiders & web's, Muskets, and slogging through the mud 50% of the way. I turned back when the H2O got to deep for my boots. after 2 hours of slow going through the mud I decided I had enough. Beautiful forest and pasture along the way, but I highly recommend doing the hike in the dryer season.
