We were only able to do about 2 miles on this trail and had to turn back. we had our dogs with us and they kept getting small thorns in their paws that were very painful. Not a good trail for dogs, unless they have feet protection.

Good trail to ease into the forest. Flat, palmettos, trees. Saw a deer when went off path. But, easy trail, no real points of interest. Good nature.

Solid trail. Nothing particularly mind-blowing to see but the sink hole is cool. This was a good way to kill a couple hours outside on a nice day, but don't expect to be wow'ed.

The nature was beautiful the history was awesome. The only complaint I think we had the whole trip was the lack of maintained trail makers and the sign and map on the way in we're so faded you could not read them.

Enjoyed this hike and all the historical points of interest along the way! I wish I had read the book The Yearling first.

I loved this walk mid-January, but would never recommend when the temperature isn't cool. The cemetery and sinkhole are cool gems. Lots of history. You will get some sun.

Great reward with the sinkhole and cemetery but not kid-friendly with poorly maintained trails and SO many sand spurs. Hiked with an adventurous 5 year old but wouldn't recommend it to parents. Beautiful forest and plant life.

Beautiful trail. Love the history behind it and the sites such as the cemetery and the sinkhole.

Oh no! This is actually a super cool trail with several historical sites to view. However, it's located in the Ocala National forest off of 19 and not Eustis as the map indicates.
