Mostly shaded trail, shared with cows and armadillo. Lots of trail markings to be aware of, and plenty of cow/horse droppings to sidestep. Firebreaks crisscross the trail. Some birds and lots of fungi.

Non-Floridian: Great trails, adequately marked for navigation, scenery was beautiful with many different species of trees, plants and other interesting life. No visible wildlife besides birds, well groomed paths with minimal brush or downed tree obstructions. Only problem I had was the ticks. Came in with zero and left with a total of 18 and having to remove 6 with the old tweezers. I did not apply any form of repellent which may have helped. Next time I suppose.

Basic paved trail. Good shade. A couple of busy road crossings at the beginning.

Great hike. Trail is NOT closed. But is open for day use. There is a nice pavilion and picnic site at the water’s edge. Couple nice creek crossings. A lot of ticks and mosquitos, but hey, you’re outside.

We went a day after a big rain so the entrance to the loops was definitely muddy but it was really nice! There are benches along the way for resting. Saw some armadillos, a small snake, saw big birds and a snapping turtle

Trail was good until you lost the flags and markings. Poorly marked. People have pulled down the markets so you tend to get lost easy.

Overall pretty typical Florida trail, very nice kept-would def rather be on horseback as I have been here often but it was still great besides the bugs..which I wore sensitive skin/family OFF and was fine. Everyone says start from the opposite trailhead if on foot and now I see why LOL but this entrance is the best for horse entry/recreation/camping. Lots of space and a mounting block for riders. There is a nice stretch of a couple miles from the main parking then it turns to grass track (it is summer. the grass is grown in, not as much sand.) besides that though it is a hellish landscape of heat acclimation and humid forest during summertime. Wear your sunscreen. Highly suggest for fellow endurance grunts like myself- closest 10+ mile loop besides Paisley and the Clermont clay loop and there is plenty of wildlife to behold from deer and birds to cows and there were DEFINITE signs of black bears-Dont worry they're nocturnal- and unlike some other similar trails I wasn't contantly looking for cottonmouths or rattler holes, and no gators/canals, which I will take deer flies over any day.

Be sure not to go to “Black Hammock Trail Head” vs “Black Hammock Wilderness Area”. We made that mistake. This was a great hike. Definitely recommend and really not too many people.

This is a ride of blue-green-red-green-home.

Forested for first half. Open in the 2nd half. It had been raining for several days before our hike but trail was passable.

Definitely use GPS or Mapping App! After the lead-in, if you take a right to go counter-clockwise, the entire trail is overgrown and mostly without any blazes. It's beautiful, but you cannot rely on a distinguishable trail or blazes to make it through. Once we reached the trail for the campsite and came out, it was very well marked and easy to follow. As if we were in a completely different forest. There are a lot of babywpies strewn along the trail and while I usually pick up any garbage I find, I'm not picking that up!

I love this trail. Great for biking, walking, running, or just walking the dog. Scenery is fantastic and a wonderful place to spend some time.

My dogs loved it!! Great picnic spots! Great swim for pups

Beautiful, shady trail. It is open, that needs to be updated. We used the Maclay Gardens trailhead access, which puts you closer to the trail around Lake Overstreet than the Miccosukee Rd. / Forest Meadows access. Well maintained and good signage.

All trails are back open! Center loop (orange markers) was a great 3-mile hike out to the lake and back. Caught a glimpse of a bald eagle. Be mindful of ticks. Will definitely come back for the East Loop.

Walked with Bruce McCall and 20# pack

Paved busy path. That is all.

I rode this trail today, from the start at the Santos Bike trail head, all 15.5 miles to the end at Ross Prairie trail head. Every trail head was open and the trails were clean and well maintained. I was glad to see so many people out on it today.

My wife and I have been there a few times and the park is great that’s an awesome place for mountain biking I would recommend it to anybody.

1at Time on this trail with a friend .it was really great lots of roots that will challenge you even as an easy trail I found it a little bit difficult, but fun. My only complaint is we could never find where the trail went East and headed down along the Creek so we ended up retracing our steps. marking good be better

Follows the Red Equestrian Trail through the park, is mostly shaded, and though part of it is sandy, it's hard-packed so not too difficult to get through. There are a few views of Pellicer Creek on the north end of the trail. Beware of the yellow flies though.
