Nice little walk. Rough to start on the fort side with construction debris and washed out clay, but once down in the woods the walk is quite pleasant. Lovely stream and spring here as well.

9/2/18. Love this trail, but had to make our own detour because of a Large Diamond Back Rattlesnake on the path. Caution!! He was not happy, very aggressive! Beware. At least 5-6 feet long!

This map shows the trail from the Land Bridge to 49th street, to ShangriLa, to Ross Prairie, across 200 to Pruitt Trailhead... Pictures are out dated, the new Florida Trail (paved bike) also runs parallel but does not interfere with the horse trails...each trailhead above can be accessed by auto and all are good starting points across Ocala FL

Great facilities for horseback riders. Sizable grass parking area with lots of shade, wash rack, watering hole and restrooms. Lots of well marked trails and access to the unique Land Bridge that takes you over I-75.

This is a really nice road bike trail with multiple mountain bike trails that cross the road bike trail. if you are a South Floridian beware that there are some hills. bring plenty of water, bug spray and suntan lotion especially in the summer.

Beautiful trail. Great views of the river

nice veried terrain at the beginning and near the end. Tree covered during most of the hike. Saw two deer both were bucks. No water during the hike so bring at least a L. During spring and summer use tick and insect spray

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

beautiful area but does NOT allow pets.

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

biked and hiked part of this today. it's actually an easy trail. Wood peckers on trail and saw a coral snake while biking but it scurried away quickly. the paved bike trail is awesome! had fun! so glad we have a safe riding option in Ocala! fun day. will return!

Great short walk in well landscaped park. Family friendly for strollers and seniors. Great design to trail to increase distance in a rather small space.

nice paved and unpaved trails for biking or walking

The trail is only two miles. Nice shadier walk. Park and trail well kept.

There is a nice paved trail, perfect for biking. Very easy. Wear sunscreen as there is no shade. Gets really hot mid summer for this reason. The Florida trail and Cross Florida Greenway intersect here. A few hilly spots to mountain bike. Very peaceful. Lovely park with large playground at start of trail. Clean restrooms and facility.

wonderful paved multi use trail!

Nice trail to hike or bike.

Beautiful weather. Ended up at dusk. I hiked the bike trails. They are steep areas in some parts I wish I brought my trekking poles

no parking what so ever. no trail head. parking along side of hwy. 40 will get you very stuck or your vehicle broken into. on the plus side FL trails are beautiful with abundant wildlife. bring water, bug spray and have fun.

I’m not sure this trail is really on AllTrails. But there are two of them. Lake eaton One is a sinkhole there’s a boardwalk. It’s pretty amazing. I missed it the last time I was here somehow. The other is a trail around the lake. Lake eaton. You have a feeling of real isolation when you’re here. But you’re really not that far from Silver Springs. You know you stayed at the right hotel when at the elevator they show a map how to get to this place. I came early in the morning 6:30 AM I thought I might hear more birds. But still a very fun walk invigorating. 56°

Nice easy trail wich is part of a bigger trail system within Silver Springs State Park. Typical Florida ecosystems around a large sink hole which is located on the southern half of loop.

Went mountain biking and it was a lot of fun. The yellow routes were a little too easy and the blues were definitely doable and the most fun. Good for family time or just hanging with some friends.

Post Irma 10 days First off, the mosquitoes are really bad. So make sure you bring some deet. If you're hiking you'll probably need to stick to the bike trails, they are pretty much clear. The Florida trail is not. Interesting post Irma Walk. Huge. I mean huge trees are down. Pretty amazing walk.
