HikingGreat!

Heading north at Seneca RD take trail to Right.(No Tan Takto Trail) up to Townsend road. Last 1/2 mile the most beautiful fields of wild flowers. Even mid September was amazing. Short walk back to west to rejoin on Townsend rd. You can also continue up one more road and they rejoin in a mile.

No real elevation change, but uneven terrain. Well marked and easy to navigate. Great trail for multiple skill levels!

Nice walk in the woods to start, if you keep going you walk through a beautiful pasture with views and then on to Teeter Pond. Delightful!

The valleys are my favorite part. The shelter at the end is pretty run down with some hornet nests to add to the Decore. Crazy amount of spider webs on trail it was very annoying

Easy hike with a mix of open fields and dense woods. Not a lot of water resources so you’ll have to pack a lot of water

Hiked this trail from the Blueberry Fields camping ground headed south, for about 3 miles and back. Entrance is a little down the road from the camping grounds, to the left from the parking area. Such a nice hike for a sunny afternoon, plenty of shade, a little buggy but that’s expected in the heat of summer. The beautiful pasture was a nice treat for a different kind of view. Would hike again!

I hiked 2.5 miles out from the Blueberry Patch Campground, headed north. It was easy and flat, with lots of raised wood walkways. You'll pass a pond but other than that it's all just woods, so not a ton to look at.

Nice and easy backpacking trip. Parked at Blueberry campground then headed south on Interloken to campsite by Gorge trail. Hiked down Gorge trail to check it out and got our water at a nice creek near the end. Next day headed back up Interloken then connected to Burnt Hill for a different view past Blueberry. Connected back to Interloken and continued on North for next campsite by the pond. Hiked a few more miles north to the pasture with cows, then turned around and camped our last night. Quiet area, lots of wildlife. Saw paw prints, possibly coyote or bobcat? Trails were muddy in spots, and lots of bugs!!

Muddy

we parked at blueberry patch campsite and headed south. on memorial day weekend we saw 4 groups, every other 45 mins, so that feels quiet to me. some of the muddy paths added to the fun to be honest. I really enjoyed the open field section, as the countryside views were beautiful, just watch out for the cows!!

We parked at Blueberry Patch Campground and took Interloken Trail south to Gorge Trail. It totaled 7 miles out and back. Lots of mud, some hills. Gorge is more challenging than Interloken but gorgeous creek views.

WalkingMuddy

Walked the first four miles as an out and back from north to south. Very easy, no real elevation change, and a very pleasant walk (rather than a hike). Leaves were very colorful when I did it. It's a multi-use trail so parts of it were pretty torn up. Also, some parts of it are part of a project between the forestry service and local farmers who pasture their cows on the land from May to October, so you may find yourself standing in a herd of cows and calves. Be sure to close the gates behind you.

I hiked the stretch starting at Blueberry Patch in FL National Forest on Sept. 15 2019 heading south towards the lean-to. The horses have torn this trail apart. It is a muddy, miserable mess. I love a challenging hike but this was just awful and I will never do this again outside of cross country skiing, for which this trail is great for. It is such a shame that horses are allowed to ruin this trail as there is so much poop and long stretches of mud that make this trail nearly impassable. If you’re looking for an alternative (which you can also do a nice overnight hike on) I’d explore other trails in the area, such as the Bristol Hills Trail or other stretches of the FL Trail that horses are not allowed on.
