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.

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.
