More elevation changes than I was expecting, definitely a steep trail for Florida. Don’t expect to fly through at your usual pace. Really interesting seeing the rare plants that grow here. There’s still a few unstable damaged bridges and the canopy is thin, but the trails are all passable after Michael. Watch for snakes.

Trail is REALLY torn up from the hurricane in 2018. Still, nice day hike. Challenging sections.

Great trail with elevation in Florida! Follow the orange markers, blue markers are for side trails. It was muddy in some places and I walked through standing water in a few spots as well. A few downed trees but nothing too hard to get around. The trail was marked well and was great exercise. I bet the views would be even prettier in the spring!

I did a portion of this trail. Started at Greg's house and did the section of the trail parallel (at least for some time) to the river, and then came back the same way. A little bit of mud, some downed trees, but nothing too difficult to get around. Some varied landscapes to enjoy, the view of the river, the swamp, the woods. I was really hoping to see the rare Torreya pines along the trail, but couldn't find any! There are a handful right at the house, but I wanted to see them in their element..I guess that's what the lack of 5 stars is about. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

fairly challenging for a girl who lives in zero elevation. it's almost 7 miles and we did not go through the Gregory house. there was one toilet in one of the campsites. Lots of bridges down or falling apart but doable. some muddy areas... lots of steep up/downs. Bring your hiking sticks and it will make it much easier. Overall a fun hike.

Quite muddy, lots of water crossings out. We hadn’t been here since Hurricane Michael hit, so sad to see the tree loss. We almost don’t recognize it anymore but still a lovey hike.

Still lots of trees down, but it’s clearly marked and pretty easy to navigate. It’s nice experiencing some elevation changes in this part of Florida!

HikingGreat!

I was not expecting the elevation gain! Being from Oregon I have climbed my share of mountains, but I was not expecting the peaks like this. My watch said just over 1100 feet of gain. It was a lovely day, my pups and I only had to jump a couple small creeks. Being that I’m directionally impaired, the trail was well marked and we didn’t get lost! Follow the orange paint and pink ribbons. We have picked a couple of ticks off each of my pups and one off me, so be prepared for stowaways.

Awesome, awesome trail! I loved this hike with my dog. Despite the down trees from hurricane Michael, it was very well marked. I would definitely plan it as more of a 6.5 mi hike due to the alternate trail routes! Love the change in vegetation and elevation! Great hike. Will definitely do this one again.

Scouting trip to see the campsites. Much more. Up and down than other FL trails but this trail was great. Good streams all along the northern part of the trail for refilling if you have a filter. Bridges were all falling apart to some degree, one bridge is one support beam broken from collapsing. Next time I'll give myself more time so I can complete the loop.

This is one of my favorite hikes in north Florida. The hard wood areas of the trail have significant damage since Hurricane Michael. This will take many years to recover, but the upland sand pines areas are generally still in good shape. The trail is probably running longer that it had pre-Michael. The bridges are damaged but the entire loop is passable. If you are a naturalist it is pretty interesting seeing some of the plant succession happening in the hard wood areas. These areas previously had a very dense cover so the forest floor was blocked out. These open areas now have a lot of new growth.

Love this trail. Best hike in Florida for me so far. I took my 27 lbs of gear out with me to help train for backpacking. A few water spots but stop when you see it if you need it. There are also picnic areas you can hike to that have water if you run out.

Went from campground. Went to house. Took connector road from trailhead cutting a mile off trip. Still added up to 9.9 miles. Hot in the sun where all the trees were blown down in hurricane. One bridge burnt up in forest fire. Saw no animals and few birds. All the birds were near the river. Lots of wildflowers.
