Lots of bugs, water, and it’s over grown right now. Description says wait till October and they are right. I would even wait till December when cold temps kill some vegetation and spiders.

Relatively dry right now but starting to get snakey. The Cathedral was beautiful.

The trail leaves the river . Don't worry you did not miss the trail just follow the blazes and it makes it a little further. it's very scenic and very remove.

The trail follows the river to a point. Then the trail goes away from the river and seems to leave the route on the map. However, it was easy to turn around and head back to the trail head.
I’ll explore this trail again.

Very nice and runnable trail. The trail was well mark and 6 miles is what my gps recorded. It has a few wet spots but I ran in my trail running shoes with no problems.

Breathtaking trail, be prepared for mud!

Nice trail, very pretty river which is stained dark with tannic acid from the trees. So don’t be afraid to get it, it’s clean, cool, and refreshing.

The trail seems to have recently been remapped so there a lot of different paths that don't show up on the map. Also when driving there you're on dirt/sand roads for about 6 miles. Don't worry you're going the right way.

The trail isn't hard, but because it's not well maintained, it's hard to follow. Don't go during the rainy season, the palms are in a swamp head and the trail runs under water for a good part.

Trail is not marked and hard to find. When l found "a" trail, I was not impressed. Better trails can be found in Tallahassee.

Five stars for the views, three stars for the bugs :/

Absolutely beautiful trail. It's been very dry lately so the trail wasn't difficult to traverse at all. Make sure you go down the blue blazed trail to the spring because that is a stunning sight to see!

Nice hike not hard. Watch for the first turn by the heliport. We missed it. added a extra mile to the hike.

Great trail! But it was a tough 6 miles!

Easy to follow the orange marked trees. Few roots. Some muddy spots, but mostly high and dry. Good, flat trail. Half dirt road, half in the woods.

A really nice place... you will love it! You can enjoy nature and see many alligators, turtles, fishes, and manatees when cannoeing... the river is cristal clear in some areas so clear that you will jump and swim! A beautiful place.
