Beautiful day. There were other people hiking, which is always nice. I took to Florida trail for the most part; it’s super Well marked. I did walk on the bunny trail which is part of a bike trail does pretty good too. There are bugs. But no mosquitoes. And spiderwebs

Not being from the southeast, I wasn't expecting much. This trail definitely exceeded my low expectations. I wasn't able to figure out where the 2.8 mile loop this app suggests, but the best part is it connects to a whole system of trails, the longest loop being 12 miles. I'll definitely come back!

Decently maintained trails crossed paths with two snakes.

Trails definitely seem to be designed for equestrian usage. Some trail markers are missing, I did get turned around a little bit towards the end of my loop. But I did find some nice ruins as a result.

Be advised that the gate gets locked BEFORE sunset. I had to have a sheriff's deputy dispatched to let me out.

Hiked A tract and enjoyed the hilly terrain.
We saw a large rattle snake lying across the trail but it had no interest in us and quickly left. I saw the hikers' peace sign made of pinecones; fellow hikers and I added a pinecone of our own. I would like to go back and hike the other trails at Croom.

A beautiful trail with lots of birds and other wildlife sightings. Views include ancient cypress and towering old citrus trees. Just one of several incredible trails within the Highlands Hammock State Park.

Easy loop with varied terrain, plenty of scenery.

Can get sandy in some areas. Some spots are under cover, some are open. Trail is very wide

Great trail to walk, hike, bike, and skate. Lots of little stop offs you can make to explore the surround woods.

beautiful area but does NOT allow pets.

We did a great moderate 10 mile hike on this trail with our pup. It was beautiful with a lot of wildlife, trees, and scenery. Most of the pathways are not groomed and you have to make your own trail after a storm or two. One thing I did not like was that people hunt here as well and that makes me nervous to hike during hunting season!

Call or visit the website for the hours. It’s summer and they’re open till 730. Which is nice. They’re actually no bugs right now. I did the phosphate mine trail twice and it is steep. Keep a lookout on the red signs on the trees. I took a couple wrong turns but got back on the path. The River Loop, Trail was interesting but I never could stay on the red trail at one point I was on the bike trail I’m pretty sure. It was interesting there is over a dozen car is in the parking lot. But I never saw anyone on the trail except for one other person and that was another walker with the dog I wonder where they all were On the phosphate mine trail you’ll really enjoy all of the Firemans or simply marvelous.

I hiked the trail towards the back. And was totally deserted. Wonderful. When you walk 1 mile down a ancient cabbage palm lined Road, you come to the Florida Trail. Maybe not like the real Florida trail, but I believe it’s a side shoot that they volunteer and maintain. You can go to the left and it says it’s a 3 mile loop back to the trailhead. I did not do that. I went to the right. And you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. Next time I’ll walk even further there is a Bee island it sounded interesting. It was not super hot. And they’re actually no bugs. Yay

Lovely. Trails are nice and wide and the habitats vary. Doesn't flood out much. It starts off shaded by Oaks and eventually opens up into natural pines and sunshine. Blue trail still closed as of April 15th.

Alafia River State Park is absolutely beautiful. the Old Agrico hiking trail is exactly the type of trail I've been looking for in Florida, there's a lot of hills due it's history of being an old phosphate mine. The only thing I'd advise, is if you're there only to hike, ask for a map of the bike trails also. The trails for the bikers aren't labeled that well, and if you find yourself lost in a slew of them, your hiking trail map isn't going to help you much. Very wonderful park. I'll definitely be back soon.

nice trails and great campsite by the river. be sure to bring enough water as neither of the 2 pitcher pumps on the property work.

ABSOLUTELY LOVE! went here for an earth day hike and it was amazing! beautiful scenery and not too challenging, good amount of people jogging and hiking and the trails are marked very clearly so u never feel lost. another nice thing is the different trails are all connected so u can really choose an ideal length trail by turning certain ways on different trails, definitely gonna go again (:

It's an ok trail. Not maintain so you will feel like some parts of the trail might knot even be a trail. There isn't much shade or wooded areas. Its a lot of open space. For walking or just hiking a trail is ok.

Best trails for off roading so far in north Florida!!!! I had blast for 2 hrs!!! Moderate level!!!

It's a great trail. Maintained and marked. it's a loop that breaks up into 2 different loops. They both return you back to camp. You can camp out if desired. Great scenery and not heavily trafficked.

This is a different hike than most of the ones in North-Central Florida. Water is still up in some areas so you get to do some of your own navigation to get around flooded areas. Terrain changes are great.

this park was Florida's most visited, till Disney.

Great trail with well marked trails. Did the B loop which is about 9 miles starting at the Tucker Hill Trailhead. $2 to access park. I would rate this easy to moderate. The trail has a few roots and some dampness here and there but overall a pretty easy hike with some elevation (150 ft.) which is a lot for Florida. Very little traffic and the ability to customize your hike as you go. Enjoy!

Very sandy in areas, pretty sure I ran in circles at times, saw heaps of wild life- Birds, turtles, and a huge snake.
