From Sandhill parking area it is an 11.5 mile loop. The parts that align with Volksmarch trail(orange blazes) I would say are the least interesting, but once you get a little deeper into the park and onto the “white only” blazes there is more to see. I’ve hiked this trail twice now....once a day after heavy rain and once with no rain for a week. The trail does get significantly flooded after rainfall in the northern areas of the park...you will have to wade through water. The highlight of my two trips was seeing an adult black bear between 19c and 19d...gorgeous animal. Very solid trail overall.

The bike ride is worth the look for it. It is not well marked to find at trail head. The path is newly paved, wraps around and under and over roads, gets hilly with little shade. I did glimpes a bear in field were pheasants flew up. Its best to ride in fall and winter.

Nice tree covered in most areas, winding curvy paths. would like to have more painted on the path markers. it's worth the stop and ride!

This is a beautiful set of trails that would easily be 5 stars if the trails were better marked. The maps at the front follow an older color coding system and don't include some of the new trails on the yellow one-way loop. Hikers should beware of cyclists, and vice versa. Due to the high scrub and limited visibilty, it might be wise to put a bell on your bike.

I love love loved this hike so much wild life and just a great time you get to climb over roots and walk on board walks I absolutely loved it and so did my dog!

Loved doing this with our dog but we didn’t see much wildlife and the trail was market but in my opinion poorly. It definitely wore me out and was a good time will be back!

Nice trails. Great river views. Easy. Dogs allowed.

Several miles of trails here at this state park. I didn’t encounter any issue with overgrowth on the trail, although in some areas it’s very sandy, so make sure you have appropriate shoes and low gaiters if possible. The park is beautiful with a varied environment. Saw a river otter, great blue heron, and several deer while out on this hike.

this trail has been closed all year

Nice getaway if you’re in Disney area looking for relief from the madness. The trails can be muddy and closed, even in winter/dry season. Call the Preserve in advance and check on the status of the trails.

Loved this trail! We didn’t intend on walking the whole 7miles. But it was so beautiful out there we had to keep going. I’ll be revisiting this trail many times. We also learned that there is one camping spot available about halfway through the trail.

Great trail system and info on early residents of the area.

Short and may be wet!

Nice short day hike. Bring a rod to fish from some great spots on the way. One low section near the river is often washed out (for 15 to 40 feet depending) so either be prepared to either bushwack a little, get your feet wet, or wear high boots.

Trail is a rather dull 6 mile loop. Old Florida, scrub, ferns & pines. Inside of Loop was former control burn. Saw a soaring bald eagle, several red bellied woodpeckers (hint, they’re red headed but not visibly red bellied!), and lots of yellow bellied flycatchers scurrying around in the brush. Lots of tracks in the mud, but no critters.

Pretty walk,, easy. On and off lake views. Don’t know if you have to do the extra loop de loops to make up the whole 3.2 miles. Will come back again.

bug spray definitely. found rutting earlier today

This is a must, great drive and you will see lots of wildlife. Do not pass this opportunity if your in the area! You can stop at many places and get out to take photos.

Gator hook trail is in loop road as well. West entrance.

The trail is open, you must pay fee at the Collier-Seminole State Park office at the entrance. They will give you the code to the lock. The trail is about a 1/2 mile east of the park so you drive back out of the park heading east. They will also give you a map.

It is a great trail that loops back to entrance. Be advised this trail is very wet during the rainy season. It is not easy, even during the dry season.

Get there early so you have plenty of daylight. Take Plenty of water and snacks. Some areas even during dry season are muddy. No sneakers, take hiking boots. Common sense take hiking poles.

Trail markers all along to guide you. Marked on trees yellow paint and pink ribbons. It is a very narrow trail.

There is a primitive camp site but I have not stayed overnight. Im not sure how it works or if there is an extra fee to stay overnight. Ask ranger.

When you complete your hike phone the ranger office and let them know you left safely. The pass they give you with the code has the tel number.

Its a great hike even if you dont do the whole loop.

Great to drive and bike, not hike. Lots of history, Al Capone and gangsters. I drive it a couple of times a year. Lots of places to stop and enjoy nature. Plenty of gators and snakes so heads up.

Great trail for Bikes, hiking it is a bit challenging due to length. Its paved so it gets hot. A lot of gators, thats a main attraction. Also great for bird watching. A lot of tourists. If you have an everglades yearly pass you can use it. Bike rentals, guided tours and office with vending machines.

It is very popular.

This is a short trail off of 41. The biggest concern are mosquitoes during wet season. Other than that it is Easy. Im not sure why its rated moderate.

The actual trail map hasn't been updated recently, the main trail that the map shows is not there anymore
