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 packers 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.

This was my first off road experience. We had a great time. If this was easy though I can’t imagine difficult.

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.

Ride here 2-3 times per week for past 17 years. Great equestrian community here.

We loved it! It’s rated as an “easy” trail but I’m a little afraid of heights and some of the obstacles had me holding on for dear life. So much fun, definitely recommend and would do again.

Not much to look at. Good for exercise.

Nice trail, however it is 4.5 miles one way

It was our first real "off road" experience and we had a great time. We went on a Saturday and mostly all alone on the trail. The few others there were friendly. The trail offered many fun ups and downs that were plenty challenging enough for us beginners. There was one hill that was too much for us this time, but we will want to go down it on another trip. I highly recommend this place -- very fun.

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.

well-maintained relaxing trail. lots of birds, butterflies and squirrels. the pine trees were beautiful. some pretty flowers too. would definitely do again

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.

Looks like the Swamp and River Trails are combined here. They're both great.
