I'm giving this trail a 3 star rating because the trail is heavily traveled and although the signs say no dogs, i seen atleast 10 diffrent dogs being walked on the trail. The trail head is also behind the Hunters Creek Middle School so it is closed during school hours. The only entrance in to the trail is through the school bus loop and the trail is not marked very well once you get inside the woods. Besides all of the dogs being walked on the trail, I did not see any signs of wildlife on the trail which is why I love to hike. I personally like the more secluded and thicker trails in seminole and volusia county so I probably will not waste my time going back to this trail.

They charge $4 to park and hike. The trail is literally within 50 feet of the turnpike. alot of traffic and road noise. did not see any wildlife on the trail which is why i love to hike. I will not waste my money or time on this trail again.

FYI - YOU CAN'T PARK AT TRAIL HEAD DURING SCHOOL HOURS

It's September. It's hot. It's barren of mammals. A sandy slog to see some butterflies, but I was here for the exercise, right? Took the South, then North Green Loop and added in the Blue Lake Loop, for around 6.5 miles. Came to see the Split Oak - but walked right passed it. It wasn't even marked.

Quiet except for the IOA planes heading north. My calves and hamstrings are cursing me from the sandy trails, evident on about 60% of the combined path.

Nice track, just empty of wildlife. If I had fur, I probably wouldn't be out in the sun much, either. (Did spot what appeared to be bobcat prints, along with some deer and small critters.)

Really great Florida wilderness trail! Watch out for the armadillos!

The park is right next to the highway which destroys the experience of a complete connection with the nature.
