Very nice trail, with lots of elevation change for Florida. Spotted a couple deer and a yearling on a few separate occasions. Highly recommended

Lovely trail! Well marked, great views, and definitely helped me prep for the trails up in GA with all the hills here. The only downside is there are plenty of spiders if you arrive in the morning (and you should, because it gets hot) and the area can be prettu buggy, especially by the river. Bring a watch too, because your phone will not know what time zone it's in.

Beautiful hike! Well marked Trail with great views. You get to experience many ecosystems that represent Florida. Moderate rating for hike. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ rating for hiking with your dog. Several fresh water creeks along the way to allow your pup to drink and cool off. Watch out for snakes, gators, wild hogs and yellow jackets. Pack appropriate water as potable water refills are limited.

Well marked, adequately maintained. Runnable in parts. Some nice views. Unusual for FL in the elevation changes. $3 for parking.

We camped out one night at the bluffs site. The site was spacious, though slightly challenging to find a flat spot to set up the tent. We were also disappointed in the "bluff." It was more like a steep hill going down to the water, and you could barely see the water through the thicket. One awesome feature was that they had pre-bundled wood near the campsite which meant we didn't have to search for it.

The trail was well maintained. We completed the loop the next morning right under 2 hours without our packs. It was a pretty easy hike overall.

Great hiking! The water levels were very high, so unfortunately parts of the trail closest to the river were taped off and unavailable. Beautiful views and fun educational bits along the trail make this a great trail for little ones.

Perfect day, good to prep for the AT, marathons, or any extreme sport. Mosquitos are a problem if walking or standing still!

This is an approximately 1.3 mile trail to Rock Bluff campsite. You can choose the shorter 0.87 mile route along a dirt road to the same site but the longer version is more interesting. You can always loop back to the trailhead on the dirt road. The campsite offers three individual tent sites. Site one overlooks the Apalachicola River and you get a nice breeze.

Just before you reach the campsite is a port-a-potty and there is a cage with firewood for purchase (pay at the park office attached to the Gregory House).

This is perhaps the best marked trail I've ever been on.

Amazing hike! Lots of different ecosystems. Lots of wildlife. Definitely returning to do the other part of the trail. The Rangers are extremely nice and professional. Get ready for a couple of steep climbs.
