I went with my husband and we loved it. Not at all what I was expecting. It was hot though and we went an hour before sundown. The inside trails do have cover from the sun but not much air movement. It was much cooler on the outside trail.

Some nice hills and plenty of gopher tortoises. Beautiful canopy to keep the sun off you. Look for the Passion flowers and monarchs.

This place really is hidden - it isn’t on any of the gps maps ... but once I found it, it was really nice! The trails are well maintained and have nice elevation changes. There is a “lake” ... more like a pond, at the bottom and the trail circles around and up on the ridge. It has quite a lot of variety for a smaller area.

I'm a geocacher and I was out there today walking around and it was so beautiful in there and I had no idea that this was even here in Eustis.... really a great place to hike or go out and take a walk and good for all walks of life and for children but be careful for wildlife and snakes and spiders and critters it's all out there and poisonous plants best hiking place here in Lake County

I really enjoy this trail. It's very interesting and I love the streams. I have always entered on the west side on country club rd. not abrams

Although this is a good trail I still prefer Lake May reserve on 44a.

This is one of the few trails with any elevation nearby my new FL home. I enjoyed the varied terrain and foliage. I walked a few loops on the different (all fairly short) trails and got in some good exercise.

I did not know there was an entryway and Abrams Road. I didn’t like this way into the park. You’re walking to close to home just to open. I like the other entryway a lot better. And of course since I went in a different way I got turned around got lost in this tiny tiny park.

Update. Over many years of hiking here, I have encountered a coral snake twice. Easy to spot and not aggressive, I have only seen them in the Spring. If you hike with little kids who may be tempted to pick up this pretty snake educate them in advance.

My wife and I have walked hundreds of miles here and never tire of the variety. One of the few places in Florida with elevation.

Enjoyed a cooler day of Florida “winter” on this hike. Trails were great, only saw a couple of birds. It was still a great hike.

Bear pond. I made it to iron Bridge. You have to walk a good half mile on a wide dirt road and it’s easy to Miss orange signs so use the AllTrails GPS. Be sure to bring a hat. Repeat be sure to bring a hat. There’s a lot of wide open areas, but it’s very very very peaceful

These trails are easy to navigate with the map provided at the kiosk. There is a lot a wildlife to see as long as you keep your eyes open. Lake Alfred Trail has a large tree down right before the bridge due to hurricane Irma. Hopefully they get some trail maintenance out there.

For a beginner hiker like myself, I would recommend.

Post Irma. When you walk south of the bridge there is a little detour around a big fallen magnolia. Follow the orange flags. You could go through it but not recommended! Saw a big rabbit

We hiked the Florida Trail segment that runs through Seminole SF as a there-and-back day hike (around 15.2 miles, from Cassia to Bear Pond and back). Despite its length, this was a very pleasant and relaxing hike through a nice mix of habitat types--primarily pine flatwoods, with one long stretch through palmetto scrub and brief traipses through hardwood hammocks and past lakes, marshes and creeks. There's a good map at OutInTheBoonies.com (http://www.outintheboonies.com/Seminole_Forest/topo_map.jpg) and a good trail description at FloridaHikes.com (http://floridahikes.com/florida-trail-seminole-state-forest). The trail is mostly well-blazed and easy to follow, with a couple turns in the northern half that are easy to overshoot as the path briefly merges onto old forest roads then veers off again--not a big deal, just backtrack a bit if you haven't seen a blaze recently. The section through palmetto scrub is completely exposed, so be sure to take plenty of water if it's a hot sunny day, or a raincoat if it's drizzly (on the bright side, you'll almost certainly see several scrub jays out there). Blackwater Creek, about midway between the two trailheads, makes a lovely picnic spot; the Boy Scout shelter (near the Bear Pond end), would be a decent stop too--nothing much to look at, but it does offer protection from the elements and a comfortable place to sit.

Very scenic area that actually has some hills. trails are well marked, and you can walk several to increase the mileage.

I led a small group hike beginning at the Cassia trail head last Saturday (8/21). The trails were in good shape and other than crossing the path of a few horseback riders we had the trail to ourselves. August really is NOT the time for serious hiking in Florida: I sweated through two tees on the trail. We did approx. 6.3 miles. No wildlife due to our later start and the opressive humidity. I would recommend this trail without amy reservations. The habitat is typical Florida scrub pine and oak eith a sampling of grass prairie. If you go be sure to pick up the literature on the Florida Trailwalkers program managed by the state's Division of Forestry.

It is a relatively easy and small trail with a few steep inclines. The high school uses this trail to train their athletes. Don't be surprised when a flock a runners zooms through. The "canyon" on the east side of the park has a small stream running through and is the usual spot for people to see when they visit here. I've been going here since I was a kid and would recommend it to anyone looking for a short and easy hike. I would suggest using the entrance off Abrams by the church (short route to the stream).
