Trail is not at all maintained. You'll encounter fallen tree after fallen tree across the path and it's very easy to lose the trail in parts.

Saw a deer and armadillo. Tons of butterflies. Trail clear post Irma. The pine cones in one species are huge. Lots of up and down!! And the pines burnt as many were are beautiful. The yellow A trail loop
Turns into orange Florida trial ? Not sure. So at 3 miles or so I turned back. Never second guess that decision. Glad I did. Did 6+ miles and the trail looks different on the way back. I ran out of water about three fourths of a Mile From trailhead. Knowing I had only a Ways to go was comforting. Never again !

Caves have graffiti but I think it gives them character

I live in the Pacific Northwest now, but lived in Tampa for 31. I hiked this trail a few years back and found it hot, bug infested, sandy, monotonous and shabby. It's nothing but palmetto and scrawny little pine trees. I guess it's okay simply because it's about as good as it gets in Florida.

I went out last Saturday to the Withlacochee state forest, Crum tract. After a little while I found a great clay pit. Awesome time.

Like much of the trails in this area, this trail is much like a dirt road. Long grass makes for lots of ticks. Make sure you have applied a product with at least 20-40% deet. Had at least 15-20 ticks throughout a 9.5 mile out and back hike from Withlacoochee trail at SR 50 over to Silver Lake. Wintertime I'm sure would much better in regards to this. Beautiful trail follows the river under a mostly thick canopy. Trail is well-marked and easy to follow.

Great secluded trail. Too bad no water access, unless I was on the wrong trail.

This was excellent. I parked near the silver lake recreation area day use lot, had some trouble finding the trail head. If you walk down to the boat ramp and look left you should see it, you have to walk under the overpass (75). We took the high water trail to B loop, and basically did the outer loop which totaled 16.89 miles. Took about 8 hours. There are a few campsites along the way you can stop at. We ate lunch at Tucker Hill campsite. The forest changes landscapes a few times which is cool. I really felt like I was in the wilderness. Didn't see a single person all day. I also only saw lizards and birds. I didn't see any sign of boar. The trail is very well marked. I'll definitely be back
